In the fascinating  interview with Scott, two aspects stood out. One the difficulty that Jazz Musicians have in making a living in their careers due to the digital changes in the industry. Even Jazz clubs have had to close their doors due to high expenses. He also said that young Jazz musicians need to follow their passion and not give up. We got a lot of feedback to his remarks, with folks asking about possible solutions. We wish Scott Reeves great success on his new CD and also his upcoming trip to Japan. 

We would  like to thank Braitwaite and Katz as well as Katherine Growdon for sending us this talented musician.
