Happy New Year

Just a quick note to say Happy New Year to everyone reading us. Content will be, as it has been, a little slower than usual the rest of the week as we ease our way into 2009. But next week will be bustling as usual and then the week after that... oh, the week after that. I'm not even sure I'm allowed to talk about what's happening the week after that yet. Finally, not to turn the Newswire into obit central, but it would be a shame not to acknowledge the passing of the great jazz trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Here's a clip of Hubbard in concert with art Blakey to fade out 2008 with style:
