Working very hard to finish my new book of memoirs about both Keystone Korner and my first 50 years trying to make the world safer for bebop, including 12 innovative years at Jazz at Lincoln Center and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, and as the producer of 800 jazz recordings for companies in Europe, Japan, and the U.S. while presenting the music we all love all over the world since 1964.
