The new sound of Ethio jazz from Samuel Yirga

Dec 14, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chicago Reader

Anyone seriously sucked into the beauty and passion of vintage Ethiopian music by Buda Records' invaluable Ethiopiques series may well wonder where the good contemporary music is from that East African country.

Nice. I think the rifts go on much too long though (making parts of it boring)- 10 minutes is too long for a tune lacking real agression & and attack of the solo instruments. To tell you the truth I prefer the classical jazz compositions with traditional Ethiopien instruments. Now THAT is something!

Anyway, this one was worth listening to.

I agree, the old ones are mostly better. How do you like the vertion of Roha Band? The pianist is Elias. I think he still plays Jaz in the west coast.

It's "riffs," not "rifts."

The comma should come AFTER the end-quotation mark.

Incorrect. In American English, the comma gets included inside the quotation marks.

I do not normally edit people's misspelled words on the 'net, but I think he'd want to know to use the correct word in this instance. I know I would.

It doesn't matter that you don't believe me. American English has some different rules regarding punctuation than British English. I'm a writer and an editor. I know what I'm talking about.

I am a writer as well. I also speak 5 languages, and in none of them is the comma included within an "end-quotation mark", by grammatical rule.

If you really want to convince me you can. Simply supply a link to a credible source.

A 3 part series called "Under African Skies" was televised here in Sweden quite a few years ago. I copied it. But each episode was dedicated to one country: Za´re, Ethiopia, and Algeria (Rai). The link I sent you seems to be an extension of that series. I've never seen it before - but I'm going to look at it now!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark

In the U.S., the prevailing style is called American style,[13] whereby commas and periods are almost always placed inside closing quotation marks.[18] This style of punctuation is common in the U.S. and Canada, and is the style usually recommended by The Chicago Manual of Style and most other American style guides. However, many American style guides specific to certain specialties, such as legal writing and linguistics, prefer British style.[19][20]

It seems as though the quote you've included here does not apply because it deals with Periods and commas that are part of the person's speech. However, the next paragraph does support you:

"When dealing with words-as-words, short-form works and sentence fragments, this style places periods and commas inside the quotation marks:

"Carefree," in general, means "free from care or anxiety".

Thank you for the link and here is one for you:

And thanks for all the music links to check out! I forwarded them to a friend who's very into this stuff and our mutual friend who is a huge supporter of local jazz music. I think they'll enjoy them very much.
