Mark Zaborney of WBGU 88.1FM puts IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME in his Top 10 list

Thanks to Mark for his support of It’s About Damn Time

The best jazz doesn’t have to come from a coastal metropolis — and often doesn’t. BG singer Morgen Stiegler’s CD came in at No. 2 on our latest Jazz Top 10. Detroit saxophonist/clarinetist Wendell Harrison was at No. 5. And just by chance, the No. 1 album was by the Falconaires. No relation to anything BGSU, though. It’s the U.S. Air Force Academy band.

Thanks for listening.
