It's  no  secret,  Tom.  The  American Jazz Hall of Fame  is  a  cooperative
undertaking  of  theNew  Jersey  Jazz  Society  and  the Rutgers Institute
of  Jazz   Studes.  The candidates  for  induction  are  voted on   by  
representatives  of  both organizations, plus a panel  of jazz  people.  Dan
Morgenstern  has  been active  since the  beginng,  mc-ing  the presentation  
 ceremomy.  The NJJS  monthly publication, which  I  edited
over 15  years  and first promoted  the AJH of F,  every  year  has  puli-
cized  the event.  I  find  it hard  to believe that  Wynton  and   his 
are  unaware of it.   But  it  always has been the  practice of NewYork to
"borrow"  ideas from New Jersey  without  acknowledging any  credit.
Some  things  never  change, I  guess.  Regards--
Warren  Vache' Sr.
