A New Year, A New Blog — I’m back!

Happy New Year, everyone!

If you’re reading this, that means you’ve figured out that my “lubricious hiatus” is officially over — call it my “New Year’s Resolution” to return to the blogging life.

For now, I expect things to be about the same as they were before my break in October: posts about once a week, short essays on whatever is inspiring me to contribute to the online jazz discourse.

Since my retreat into academia, I’ve developed a keener sense of my commitment to academic discourse about jazz.  This semester, I’m going to be especially engaged in academic analysis that explores the history of how jazz has been represented in writing — in particular, the career of that goofy-looking trombonist on the Down Beat cover, Jack Teagarden.

Feel free to subscribe to my RSS feed, follow me on Twitter, or leave a comment below to welcome me back to the jazz internets.  More content coming soon …
