No problem, Nick. I mention it chiefly because it's been suggested (not by you) that this might have been just a minor matter of a kid sowing wild oats, and so forth. Of course, none of this says that Bix did what he was accused of, but the history of jazz may owe a lot to Preston Ivens' decision not to go forward with the case.

In case folks are wondering where all this flow of new data is coming from, it just so happens that Nick and I have been digging in as researchers--entirely independently of each other--and have been making numerous discoveries, though now we're beginning to pool our discoveries, with the results that you see.

Albert is also a member of this triumvirate, as it were.
