Stephen Holden on the Jonathan Schwartz Tribute

The NYTimes on a tribute to the esteemed DJ:“The two-and-a-half hour show was an outdoor gathering of his flock, both onstage and off, as Mr. Pizzarelli led the audience in humorous call-and-response renditions of standards to which everyone seemed to know the words. Although that flock was briefly scattered by a sudden shower sweeping across the Hudson, once the rain passed, it quickly regrouped…Mr. Schwartz, now 73, used to host a satellite radio program called “High Standards.” That title not only describes his musical taste, it evokes the many reasons he is an irreplaceable New York institution; he is sui generis.”
