Victor Lin Quoted in USA Today Article

victorJazzman Victor Lin was quoted in a USA Today article about why the year 1959 was so important to jazz music.  Commenting on the progression of jazz up to that point, Lin says:

“1959 didn’t just happen — jazz had been evolving all the way up through that point, and everything was headed that way,” says Victor Lin, a musician and jazz educator at Columbia University in New York and the Stanford Jazz Workshop in California.

Lin will also be presenting a seminar on 1959 at the Stanford Jazz Festival on July 29 (stanfordjazz.org).

Check out the full article here and some of Lin’s work here!  He’s pretty great…

The first track, “Don’t Let Go” is my favorite… The super hook-y chorus will have you singing along, no doubt.
