With his whimsically biting number from 1988 entitled Jazz Police, ol' Lenny Cohen has shown himself to be a prophet once again: Jazzer drop your axe it's jazz police!

disclaimer: Larry Ochs, the offending saxophonist if question, is an old friend of mine, but his stature in the music world and the newsworthyness of the episode will, I hope, override any accusations of friend-linkery...

Side by side.

Apparently, the video clips have been taken to an undisclosed location.

There must have been some way to work Stanley Crouch and Wynton Marsalis into this.
