INTERVIEW - My interview page for this issue adds a couple of links you'll want to check out...the next interview (tentatively set with Jon Baroni) will be in issue #102, after I'm in Korea.  

Two live-show reviews from the Oly area this time... BLUE WAVE and the MOMENTI RUBATI trio

Evermore exciting MUSIC reviews  (We have 28 splendid new reviews in this issue... as you know if you read us regularly, we usually have 20 or so, but I'm on vacation and got more reviewed than I wanted to hold onto until end-April (which is when issue #102 will be published)

In Issue # 102 (& later):

More fine interviews  & music reviews with today's energy "shakers & movers"

Long-time reader and musician Dave Fuglewicz:  I.N. was one of the first 'zines to respond to my work. It was a great 'zine way back then and has maintained the highest of standards every step of the way. 'Zines have come and gone, some with great fanfare, some with quiet aplomb, but few can match the Zzaj for the dedication and fortitude it takes to keep cranking it out. Diversity and ... originality are recognized and applauded, that, in my opinion has always been one of I.N.'s greatest "traits". Number 93 brings us all ever closer to the magical 100th issue. I highly recommend a visit and a read. Y'all get there now. :-)

Music promoter Ann Braithwaite's followon to Dave's comment:  Couldn't agree with you more, Dave. And have you heard Dick's music? Great!!
