GUEST cOLUMNISTS nEEDED!

I continue to work on several long-term Historical Player Features for the coming year(s). Meanwhile, if anyone has a favorite contemporary player they would like to interview and do a story on, please free to contact me. Surely everything has not yet been written on all these musicians (or do they have all the P.R. they need?)!  Thanks! Gregg Miner
