Bret Primack, aka JazzVideoGuy, weighs in on a more global scale on the topic. As much as I want to lay this to rest (because if we keep repeating it, we may start to believe it), I feel he does a really good job explaining how consumption, jazz education, and the music business as a whole has changed over the years. While jazz isn't really found on the radio dial anymore, you can find plenty of it on the internet. Be sure to check out Bret's videos on YouTube, literally hundreds of great jazz videos. And of course if we really want to put this question to rest, we must support it locally and globally, by attending local jazz performances, supporting the arts in the schools, and purchasing the albums legally.
