Cogito ergo bloggo
"I think, therefore I blog."
I have lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years and occasionally enjoy listening to a radio program called “Philosophy Talk” hosted by John Perry and Ken Taylor on Sunday mornings. They always end with an invitation to read their blog and quote the motto above, and I never fail to smile. Along those lines, I will contribute blog articles relating to musical and other topics of interest to me; please send any comments or thoughts my way.

I had not known of the magazine before then but it is written in Polish and available in hard copy also online at this link: http://jazzforum.com.pl. Following is the text of the review, first as published in Polish, and then followed by an English version approved by Jarosław. I am very grateful for his interest and his thoughtful comments.Read more
