Addendum to For Brush Players: A New Site

In my last post I discussed the relationship between tap dancing and brush playing, and also commented on additional relationships that Gerry Paton uncovered in his research. Subsequent to my posting Gerry told me about a book of essays, The Jazz Cadence of American Culture, that connects some of the dots between and among the influences. I just placed an order for the book and will write about it at a later time.

Also, I just posted a discussion of Gerry's site and additional information about some of the better brush players in an article titled Appreciating Brushwork and Some History.
