Buddy DeFranco Jazz Festival: Open to non-traditional methods

I enjoyed Kristin Jakobson's letter entitled "Look beyond traditional boundaries" (March 24).

It is true that jazz musicians and fans can be quite traditional in their taste and choice of instruments, and that the flute is often ignored.

In defense of the festival, I would like to mention that a band I was in performed at the festival in 2011. I was playing mandolin, hardly a "traditional" jazz instrument. There were a couple of musicians who seemed a little uncomfortable with it, but for the most part, I felt like the mandolin was well received by the majority of the people there.

I am in favor of traditional music, and non-traditional ways of playing it!

John Rosett,

Missoula
