|This month is almost over and the move is getting deeper. In case you missed the memo, KSDS-FM is moving the whole thing to another building on the City College campus. The grass is green in that new building but nothing is running yet. We are broadcasting, streaming, and whatever else we can do to get the music to you, but the living breathing station is still in boxes, figuratively speaking. Meanwhile, I'm going through drills with the Index of Possibilities and calculating multiple run times for stress tested overlap with Jazz tones. And I'm really really trying not to jump to conclusions (subtle hint to the hotshots).|
|While it’s good in any case to let your Jazz voice be heard in the JazzTimes Readers Poll 2014...and an entry for a package to the 2015 Portland Jazz Festival ain’t a bad one itself, San Diego Jazz fans have at least 6 more reasons to get their vote in before the polls close at 5 p.m. EST on Monday, November 24. |

AllMusic.com's Scott Yanow sums it up this way: "A jazz legend and the colossus of the tenor saxophone, the first to use the instrument as a serious means of expression."|
