Avant garde, Mainstream and traditional

I am a partner in Memphis International Records and ocassionally produce live events mostly in market. Over the years, I've produced the Beale Street Music Festival, Living On The Levee Festival and events at the Levitt Shell.
I support the JJA because
Howard Mandel was my editor at Down Beat years ago and he asked me to join when he was beginning the orgnaization. It sounded like a good idea and has been something I have supported for many years.
