It's always nice to see some Jazz get TV time. Sadly, I won't be watching. I mean, it's great Jazz is getting some time - but they roll out the same thing again and again. Bloody Miles Davis, Brubeck, Mingus, and Coleman...... same artists over and over...... I listen to Jazz, and it holds no interest for me..... You'd think Jazz had only had ten artists and they all recorded with Blue Note......
