I must preface this piece with the statement that I'm not quitting. I'll be covering the last few days of this year's Montreal Jazz Festival for the first time. I am booking at least two more shows in San Antonio, Texas, under the banner of Nextbop by the end of the year. I still intend to throw the annual Jazz for the Masses day party in Austin, Texas, during the South by SouthWest Music Festival next March. I am still the host of KRTU San Antonio's The Line-Up and still love doing that show dearly every week. I burrowed my way into this jazz world and I don't see a way for me out of it, for better or for worse. I'm not quitting. However, if anyone who pays attention to Nextbop may have noticed, it's clear our output here has been diminished over the last few years.
