Around The Jazz Internet: May 7, 2010

Items that we didn't get a chance to blog about:

  • The Seattle trumpeter and blogger Jason Parker is now on tour. I say this not to promote his gigs, but as a way of asking everyone to consider how rare and valuable it is to see any jazz musician actually touring the U.S., even if he or she has to put it together him or herself on a shoestring. More thoughts on this coming Monday.
  • I'll have more comments on Ian Carey's post next week too.
  • RIP Canadian valve trombonist Rob McConnell, from Rifftides, and JazzWax.
  • The Jazz Session this week interviews Nels Cline and Torben Waldorff.
  • The Checkout this week features Trombone Shorty, Tia Fuller and three writers of Treme: Eric Overmeyer, Tom Piazza and Lolis Eric Elie.
