    It was a real pleasure to be interviewed about my new book Long Lost Blues by Vincent Pelote on Jazz from the Archives earlier in March. I was first on the show back in 2001, and then as now, was struck by the depth and intelligence of Vincent's interviewing.  We certainly had a lively discussion about the book!

    The book is about the earliest (pre-1920) blues and its spread into popular culture.  These blues are really important in the evolution of both blues and jazz, yet they have been overlooked by historians.  In fact, my book is the first in-depth study of the genre...  Check out the book's website.
