No fail whale here.

From the jazz blogosphere to the jazz micro-blogosphere — or perhaps the other way around. Enter Twitter Jazz Network, a group blog run by folks who are frequently talking about jazz on Twitter. It's the brainchild of @MaryamLovesJazz (Twitter, personal Web site); she's also behind the calendar at DC Jazz Shows (also at @DCJazzShows), one of which I think every city needs.

Anyhow, the site just posted two substantive entries: one round robin of new jazz discoveries of 2010, and Twitter tips for jazz musicians. The site also keeps lists of Twitter handles of jazz fans, musicians and presenters. You can also follow the discussion with the hashtag #twitjazznet. Finally, if this interests you at all, you know, of course, that we are @blogsupreme on Twitter — or you do now. [Blog: Twitter Jazz Network]
