JAZZ, CLASSICAL MUSIC AND THE ARTS IN NEW YORK CITY

What Just Happened Here?!?

Since the appearance of this blog has changed so radically in the last several hours, we thought we should offer an explanation in case you’re wondering just what is going on here.

Sometime during the wee hours of August 9, 2010, the theme and background appearance of this blog was unceremoniously changed to an icky green, soft-lens close-up shot of a bug on a leaf. We didn’t change it, yet it doesn’t appear that the site was hacked. As far as we can tell, all the content here remains intact: it doesn’t appear that anything was lost. And our original template has mysteriously disappeared from the WordPress menu of available blog templates. Which is too bad – when we first began this site in April, 2007, we chose that one not only because it was fairly intuitive, flexible and reader-friendly, but because it featured a shot of one of our hometown jails, the New York Correctional Center (formerly the Bernard R. Kerik Correctional Center, until Rudy Guiliani’s former police commissioner was sent off to jail and the signs were changed in the middle of the night…kind of like what happened at this blog!). What better image for a blog about edgy music?

Desperate to get rid of the icky green leafy theme, we perused the off-the-shelf WordPress templates and discovered this one, which isn’t as reader-friendly as our original choice, but at least it has room for all of our features. If we can find another one that makes a better fit, we’ll switch to that (WordPress is very handy that way). So not to worry – we’re still here, still up to our usual shenanigans, check back for new content coming in the next few hours.
