Other cities may dominate certain genres and discrete niches, but in no other burg does the musical tradition run so deeply in genres ranging from ......

GroundUp Music Festival 2019 North Beach Bandshell, Park Stage Miami Beach, FL February 8-10, 2019 An internet acquaintance has a running post gag that she labels with #BecauseFlorida.

March 12, 2019

By far the most commercially successful of the stride pianists, Fats Waller made his reputation (and his living) through comedy. “He wasn't witty, if that word is taken to imply a kind of humor too subtle to engender belly laughs--he was funny. He was also bigger than life, Rabelaisian in intake, energy, and output. His greatest joy was playing Bach on the organ, but he buttered his bread as a clown, complete with a mask as fixed as that of ......
