Writing about music

This succinct critique by no means invalidates musicology (if it does, then Uh-oh), but I’m fond of the expression

With All Due Respect to Ms Anderson, and indeed Steve Martin, Frank Zappa, Elvis Costello,  Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, and Clara Schumann (now that’d be some jam session: cf. my fantasy dinner party), its many variations have been widely attributed. It’s another snowclone going back in sentiment to the Mists of Time (well, 1918), as in this fine piece of detective work.
