Happy to announce that after a long wait, my first article in a scholarly journal has been published. “Lester Leaps In: The improvisational devices of Lester Young” is available from the UK-based Jazz Research Journal Volume 11.2. I am greatly indebted to the work done by Lewis Porter and so many others collecting so much great writing on Lester, along with the great Lee Konitz and Ted Brown (will send copies as soon as I am able!)and research for giving me original interviews on one of their favorite subjects. I hope to make the unedited interviews available soon as well. Thanks also Professors Jenkins and Scott Reeves at City College for suggesting I even try to get it published!
