The Mark Of Jazz is more than just the name of a website. It’s a name with historic, musical and even social significance, all tied to one dedicated man and the superstar performer who was the focus of his entire career. Hear ‘whydat’ is important to our celebration of the music we call jazz.
Just in case you’d like to know something about the man behind the music, our first podcast (or Jazzcast as it’s known around here) is a handshake over the internet from Fred Masey. After you’ve heard this bit of history, nostalgia and tomfoolery, you’ll have a little better idea of just ‘whodat’ is!
