Coalition of the Swinging

Every now and then I'll use this site to get a sense of where Poolside Jazz's listeners are geographically, based on their IP address. It warms my heart to know that listeners in these disparate locales have tuned in:

Argentina
Australia
Brazil
Canada
France
Germany
Greece
Israel
Italy
Mexico
Morocco
Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Slovakia
Spain
Sweden
Thailand
Turkey
United Kingdom
United States

If your country isn't on the list, or if you feel like introducing yourself, drop me a line and I'll make note of it here. And thanks again for listening.

A bit of jazz history in Amsterdam

During my recent visit to the beautiful city of Amsterdam, I made a special trip to the Prins Hendrik Hotel, where in 1988 Chet Baker fell out of a window (or was he pushed?) and died. Grim, yes, but they have a nice memorial to him on the hotel's facade.
