Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Sunday Music Blogging

This week Les Paul passed on at age 94. Though he is considered one of the originators of Rock and Roll, and was certainly an enabler of all who followed, he always played with a jazz sensibility. He was a great musician, and an extraordinary innovator, who had a long and fruitful gig.

RIP Lester William Polsfuss, known to the world as Les Paul (June 9, 1915 – August 13, 2009.)
