Great! Keep it up - San Diego loves Jazz and Blues and would love to see this in the print section each week too!

Ditto for positive comments. It's nice to know that San Diego still has some appreciation for the greatest music ever created. I live in Vegas for some years now, and it's a desert--literally and musically as it pertains to jazz. Think I'll have to take a road trip and check out some of these venues.
