Thanks for the clarification on the poll, Michael! Very much appreciated.
I did not expect a reply so soon, nor directly from you. Having watched (rather silently and without participating) AAJ's growth & expansion over some years, I can't imagine the volume of your tasks. So a quick, personal reply is nearly as surprising as it's appreciated.
Thanks for making the additions, providing the links, fixing Mr. Puente's designation... wow, I'm impressed.
I can't let it go unacknowledged that you responded just amazingly well to a guy, me, who has barely had contact with AAJ. I was participating so casually and uncharacteristically that I expected a long wait for a reply. You provided amazing (there's that word again!) customer service, and I'm not even one.
All About Jazz has been a pillar of jazz since 1995, championing it as an art form and, more importantly, supporting the musicians who create it. Our enduring commitment has made "AAJ" one of the most culturally important websites of its kind, read by hundreds of thousands of fans, musicians and industry figures every month.
