Just wanted to post a quick comment about our disappointment in KPLU. On Monday, May 17, we posted a link to the New York Times article on the passing of legendary pianist Hank Jones.
How did KPLU choose to honor a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master (1989), National Medal of Arts winner (2008) and Grammy Lifetime Achievement recipient (2009)? KPLU played a total of 2 tracks from Hank Jones. By comparison, that same day they played 3 cuts by Diana Krall.
We deserve better!
