Will Friedwald, author and music critic, is a definitive historian on Jazz for quite a while especially when it comes to two of his books: Sinatra (Sinatra! The Song is You) and more recently Nat King Cole (Straighten Up and Fly Right). He also produces weekly Zoom gatherings featuring film/video clips (where he unearths them I’ll never know), oodles of history, special guests and fun-filled evenings for enthusiasts of the Jazz genre and for those who will become enthused after joining in.
