Links we haven't yet revealed:

  • On Jimmy Heath and his new autobiography.
  • Gangsterism on CNN. (It's a Jason Moran feature — get it?)
  • There are some delightful new additions to the Newport Jazz Festival recording archive at Wolfgang's Vault, including sets led by Max Roach, Oscar Peterson, J.J. Johnson and Dave Brubeck.
  • Maria Schneider as prog-rock, now that prog is supposedly back. (Though to be fair, I think there's also prog in Ben Allison, Darcy James Argue, Steve Coleman, Pete Robbins, Marco Benevento, Andrew Hill, anyone who takes a long solo on "Blue Rondo a la Turk" ...)
  • Artist Stephen Byram, responsible for the cover design behind many a JMT/Winter and Winter, Screwgun and Dave Douglas release, is profiled.
  • In Chicago, Chopin without pianos, with accordion, harmonica, guitar, oud, trombone choir and jazz vocals. Neil Tesser, Howard Reich.
  • Christian Scott and Trombone Shorty, considered together.
  • Ahem: "smooth cruise."
  • The Latin Jazz Corner interviews Chris Washburne.
  • JazzWax features cartoon tunes.
  • The Jazz Session talks to Bryan Murray and Charnett Moffett.
  • The Checkout this week features Geri Allen, Nels Cline and Barry Harris.
