Gil's show(s) are a 'must-listen' for students of the blues and the pros. I rely on his selections of what worthy to hear, both new and old, as there is no way I could possible keep up with the staggering amount of new music out there. Thanks Gil, you've been pointing me in the right direction every week for five plus years now! Charlie

The Jazz Arts Foundation, Inc., of Lexington KY, is a corporation whose avowed mission is to "enhance the awareness of Jazz as a performing art". Since its founding in 1989, the JAF has committed itself to the purpose of educating the public about Jazz Arts through the promotion of awareness and sensitivity to Jazz, and to upgrade it as an art form to the level of community acceptance and support equal to that given other performing arts.

  Founded as America’s first blues publication in Chicago in 1970, Living Bluesmagazine has set the standard for blues journalism around the world. Living Blues was acquired by the University of Mississippi in 1983 and is published bimonthly by the Center for the Study of Southern Culture.
