"We recently asked 50 prominent writers and editors working in the jazz arena to complete a survey, with a special effort made to reach out to as diverse a sample as possible.
We asked them about their preferences for receiving information, how and where they listen to music and their interaction with publicists among many other things."...
"When tackling the subject of blogs, we asked respondents to list five of their favorites. Oddly enough, more than half skipped this question completely, and only 37.5% filled in all five slots. Some even dedicated one or more of the slots to expressing their dislike for reading and/or discussing blogs at all.
But this time, when we asked if what they read on these blogs influenced their own work, only 44.4% said yes."
So, it's good to know that this blog is being read by REAL jazz editors (even if only half of them). I'm not sure this means that this blog comes in the third place in the ranking, but it would seem so. I only hope that it will give some more exposure to the music reviewed here.
This blog is also in the fourth spot of the official jazz blog directory.
