Happy New Year to all of our past, present, and future friends and subscribers. If nothing else, 2012 should be an entertaining year with all of the campaign shenanigans in the US.
We lost a few jazz festivals last year, and are hoping that, with the economy beginning to improve, some will return and there may be a few new ones. One can only hope ...
We at The American Rag will do our best to keep you informed and to keep jazz and ragtime alive and healthy. Naturally, we can't do that alone. You can do your part by attending as many festivals as possible, taking friends and relatives with you to show them how much fun OKOM is. And remember that a subscription to The American Rag is a great gift to yourself and others.
See you next year!
Don & Cathie Jones and the Staff of The American Rag
