The Jazz Connection
A Farewell Note from host Maryann Sullivan
Dear Jazz Friends,

Due to programming changes at Minnesota Public Radio, I regret that The Jazz Connection will no longer be aired on MPR. It has been my pleasure the past 15 months to meet with you every Saturday night and share the music I hold in such high regard and for which I am so passionate: Jazz! I hope you will take a moment to listen to one of The Jazz Connection programs available in the archive and to listen as well to an interview with one of the many fantastic artists I was fortunate enough to have conversed with during the last year. I will dearly miss our weekly time together. Now, treat yourself and go hear some live music! As Billy Strayhorn used to say... "forever onward and upward!"

Hope to see you soon...

—Maryann Sullivan
