Goodbye Phoebe and Hello Timme

Read "Goodbye Phoebe and Hello Timme" reviewed by Dan Morgenstern

Phoebe Jacobs, who left us on April 9, 2012 just a couple of months shy of 94, was a most remarkable lady who did so much for the music and its makers, as so well-documented in last month's Big Band in the Sky.

I first encountered Phoebe when she was handling press and taking care ...

On April 13, Rutgers University-Newark threw a swell party for me on the occasion of my retirement as director of the Institute of Jazz Studies.

David Ostwald's Gully Low Jazz Band: Blues In Our Heart
