Bria Skonberg, center right, in 2007
Even 11 years ago can seem like history. In these four pages from our The American Rag archive, you can see an extensive profile of Dan Levinson, a first glimpse of Bria Skonberg, a discussion of the perils of copyright for trad jazz fans, and a letter from France, written by Katie Cavera. The Levinson story runs to several pages and snakes through the whole issue. It deserves to be made available.
When we get done laying out The Syncopated Times back issues we’ll keep going with an archive of The American Rag. We have full issues going back to 2007 and many feature stories back to 1999. The process will be slow, and labor intensive. But Associate Editor Joe Bebco is one one of those weird guys that love impossible challenges of the archival sort.
