Re: “Annie Sellick's new jazz Christmas CD takes off the winter chill

I'm responding to the response by Rhio Hirsch who was responding to the the state of jazz and the Nashville Jazz Workshop by Ron Wynn in The Nashville Scene (Dec 5th). Confusing? I'll say! Proof readers and fact checkers don't always make it over to the "letters to the editor" desk, and in this case I'm glad. If the fact checkers did examine the letter from Rhio Hirsch, they'd see that Hirsch is possibly hearing voices from Whites Creek, but certainly not the music or the news from The NJW. I am currently producing the second album I've done with one of those NJW students who've never made it to the studio or gone on to "better things". Jazz has never been the bell cow of income from any city's music business, because it attracts only a small slice of the music audience. Frankly, you have to know a little about music to like jazz. That's my opinion, of course. And it's the opinion of Rhio Hirsch that nobody who's studied in one form or another at the NJW ever makes real records or get's airplay in the real business of jazz or gets invited to play professionally at the Workshop. Please don't repeat that to people like Annie Sellick or Jeff Coffin, or Liz Johnson, or Donna McElroy, or Monica Ramey, or Christina Watson, or countless others with records for sale today. Above all, please don't repeat that to ASCAP, BMI, SESAC or other performing rights organizations. Those crazy companies are under the impression that people all over the country are hearing jazz music we wrote. They even send us money! Go figure, but please do it quietly.
