ARIGATO, B*TCHES!!::Wax Poetics Japan::

Following the recent trend of many US subculture lifestyle periodicals, Wax Poetics has debuted its Japan edition! Actually, they're on issue #2 now, so I'm a little behind. However, I'm proud to have the honor of having a piece printed in the debut issue! If you've got access, check out my piece on Bobbi Humphrey!

If it doesn't cost me a zillion yen, I'll try to get my hands on a copy. In the meantime, a special prize goes to the first person who can read the following text from the Wax Poetics Japan website without using Google Translate:

「ママ・ドン・ダダ」という愛称で知られるボビー・ハンフリー。彼女の伝説的ブルーノート作品について屈託なく語り、さらに、ミゼル・ブラザーズ、スティービー・ワンダーとの当時のエピソードなども語ってくれた。ニューヨーク・シティに住むフリーランスの音楽ジャーナリスト、Rico "SUPERBIZZEE" Washingtonによるインタビュー記事。

Good Luck!
