Letters to the Editor
ISSUE | ALL THAT JAZZ Let good vibes begin Philadelphia has nurtured the jazz art form since the early '20s, producing extraordinary luminaries from Ethel Waters to John Coltrane. Many jazz and bebop legends are proud products of the city's jazz culture - most nurtured by a lively jazz scene in the 1940s and '50s, spurred by clubs in North and South Philadelphia. Today, the local jazz scene enters a new period of synthesis with innovators and virtuosos like Jamaaladeen Tacuma and Orrin Evans.

The Starbucks CEO bought himself a ton of ridicule recently when he attempted to jumpstart a national dialogue on race by having baristas write the words "Race Together" on customers' cups of Cinnamon Dolce Light Frappuccino Grande or Caffe Misto Venti with extra coconut.
