Dan Gould Posted October 29, 2022 Report Share Posted October 29, 2022 (edited) Back in June, the NYC Jazz Record, a free publication with approximately 23,000 monthly readers, solicited a "Lest We Forget" column for NYC native Percy France. My submission was selected from possibly dozens of others and the piece runs in the November issue, available online today and in print at clubs, record stores, music stores and academic music departments on Tuesday. I am beyond thrilled to share the word about Percy, not to mention as a non-writer, having my name on the byline for a significant jazz publication. This is the next best thing short of convincing the NYT to run an obit in their series of people overlooked at the time of their passing. (The published version had only one substantive change by the editor and it unfortunately introduced a glaring error: Oliver Jackson is identified as a pianist. Great thanks are owed to board members @clifford_thornton and @Ken Dryden for their help and advice when I was writing the piece.) New edit to say that the online version is corrected and my image updated (he figures he somehow thought of pianist Oliver Jones) and a correction will be issued in the December issue. http://nycjazzrecord.com/issues/tnycjr202211.pdf Edited October 29, 2022 by Dan Gould Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
