I am off for a few days to deal with some minor medical stuff, and I did not intend to write any reviews, believe me. But I sat down last night to watch one segment of the preview DVD forĀ  "Kennedy Center Honors," and I got up some two hours later feeling like I had been on a wild, joyous, pop culture rollercoaster ride. And I wanted to at least give readers of this a blog a heads-up to catch this brilliant production at 9 tonight on CBS (WJZ-Channel 13). As usually happens, and as I annually forget, the segments on the honorees that I don't care so much about are the ones that blow me away -- and make me want to run out and buy their DVD or get a Netflix of one of their greatest movies.

Reports of the death of Henry Grimes were grossly, grossly exaggerated. The rumors were all wrong. But the great jazz bassist of the 1960s has experienced a kind of resurrection. He's alive and well and playing great. He had a formidable reputation when he went missing from the jazz scene around 1972 in San Francisco. He literally went silent for 30 years. "I played around San Francisco for a while," Grimes, now 69, says during a phone conversation. These days he lives in New York City.

What was the hardest lesson you've learned so far? "That, as a writer (but more importantly as a person), failure is inevitable. You have to put it all aside and keep working, because you're not writing for anyone's approval or publication or your legacy. You're writing for yourself. " What's a fact about yourself that will surprise people? "For a so-called 'creative' person, I'm very regimented. I get up the same time, take my dog out for walks at the same time, eat meals at the same time.

Earl Coleman, 69, a jazz singer who recorded with Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins and Shirley Scott, among others, died Wednesday of cardiac arrest at his home in Manhattan. A deep-voiced performer of ballads, he was a product of the graceful early forms of jazz singing. He had absorbed Pha Terrell, Dan Grissom and Billy Eckstine, and their heavy, sophisticated ease. Though he was mostly a ballad singer, he also performed up-tempo material and blues pieces. And while his style was linked to an earlier era, he recorded and performed with members of the be-bop generation.

When Wynton Marsalis first burst on to the scene, his arrival was applauded for a number of reasons. There was his youth, his virtuosity, his belief in tradition and adherence to classic jazz forms. It was obvious even then that he was going to be an influential stylist on trumpet, and an important figure in jazz.But the one thing no one could have guessed was that Marsalis would become a brilliant young bluesman, to boot.It's not hard to understand why. Most listeners think of the blues as being just an adjunct to jazz; a root element, to be sure, but hardly the stuff of great improvisations.
