Around The Jazz Internet: May 14, 2010

Some items we didn't really mention this week:

  • The Jazz Journalists Association has relaunched its quarterly newsletter as an online news hub. JJA News is the site.
  • Nate Chinen on 16-year-old jazz-pop sensation Nikki Yanofsky. Be sure to read his blog addendum, 'cause there's an complicated point buried in there worth reinforcing.
  • Destination: Out features one of the rare Sun Ra sideman appearances, this one with vibraphonist Walt Dickerson. No, not Impressions of a Patch of Blue; the other one. Yes, there's another one.
  • The annotated version of the new Fight The Big Bull record, All Is Gladness In The Kingdom.
  • Jason Marsalis on bad modern jazz: accurate diagnosis, questionable prescription.
  • Trumpeter Ian Carey replies to my reply to his reply to my ... oh, just read this. Also, Howard Reich on jazz institutions.
  • Christopher Guest on jazz and music mockumentaries. H/T JazzTimes online.
  • Teddy Bunn! At Jazz Lives.
  • Jon Wikan: percussionist, home brewer.
  • The Jazz Session this week interviews Dana Hall and Paul Pines.
  • The Checkout this week features interviews and performances from recent music school graduates.
