Jazz Masters 2010 and the Perils of Cultural Reporting
What I find irksome about the AP report is that it manages to do two things. The first is that the report hypes the eminently uninteresting and self-promoting Wynton Marsalis who was heading the accompanying orchestra at the awards concert last night. He was an accompanist not an honoree! The second thing is that on a list where only three of the members are white, the rest being African American, the reporter manages to spend the bulk of the article talking about two of the white folks. Am I missing something here?
