  1. Will,

    Nice looking blog.

    It doesn’t look like ZShare allows you to embed, right?

    I’ve used, for example here:

    But there are other services, such as

    They give you the emebd code a la YouTube, and are a lot easier than hosting and embedding from your own server.

    On a different subject, I presume you saw the NYT article on Jazz Diplomacy, if not check it out:

    See also, Penny M. Von Eschen’s Satchmo Blows Up the World: Jazz Ambassadors Play the Cold War, HUP.

    Standard apologies if you’ve seen this stuff before.

    Best wishes,
