"The Boston-born Hentoff began his career in broadcast journalism while also hosting a weekly jazz program on Boston's WMEX. In 1953, Hentoff moved to New York City and began writing for jazz magazine Down Beat; he was fired from that job in 1957 after attempting to employ an African-American writer, the AP reports.

The following year, Hentoff joined the Village Voice, where he served as columnist for the next 50 years, writing about a myriad of subjects involving politics, education, religion and, most importantly to him, freedom of speech and First Amendment issues."

He put together some great & fearless sessions as A&R director for Candid records in the early 1960s--Charles Mingus Presents Charles Mingus & We Insist are albums for the ages.
