I'm sure you've heard by now... the chill is being felt across the blogging universe... petty, ignorant lowlifes (a term that might actually be too generous in this case) have raised their ugly, twisted head(s)...

Two of the high quality jazz blogs have gone dark and are no more. The Jazz Inn and A Darker Shade Of Blue were highjacked by the lowest form of human. First this sub-species stole the email account of the curator of these blogs, then attempted to trick the followers of both blogs into sending them money (thankfully, the followers are infinitely more intelligent than the sub-species lamely trying to dupe them), and then deleted both of the blogs.

Why? Who knows.

Thanks to one of the prominent members of the blogging community (you know who you are - you rock!) for helping to spread the word to the jazz/improvised music community of this idiotic stunt and ultimate destructive act.

If you are someone (whether blogger or follower) who cherished what A Darker Shade Of Blue and The Jazz Inn endeavored to provide for this discriminating audience, please spread the word that something wicked this way comes.

Maybe the phoenix will rise from the ashes, albeit in a transformed state. Maybe there'll be some changes made. Maybe if you care what happens you can let them know. Maybe the scum will drop dead because they're already brain dead.

We can only hope...


  1. Thank you for sharing this information! I got a few emails too.

  2. Just back from Holidays,I was one of the people who enjoyed your post, I am speechless, I had seen many things on that line, this is defineitely mean and destructive. My English cannot render the frustration acts like this cause.
