Around The Jazz Internet: July 22, 2011

Summertime, and the breathing is uneasy.

Elsewhere at NPR Music:

  • Gerald Wilson, his son Anthony Wilson and his grandson Eric Otis spoke to Weekend Edition last weekend.
  • A Tom Vitale report on All Things Considered on the life of jazz's most important patron of all time, Baroness Pannonica "Nica" de Koenigswarter.
  • Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz this week features the episode where Marian reminisces and reunites with her Hickory House trio.
  • JazzSet this week airs the Arturo O'Farrill Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra from last year's Newport Jazz Festival.
  • John Murph has a closer listen to a Sachal Vasadani song.
  • Deceptive Cadence on the closing of Borders, the once-massive book-and-music chain store, and its effect on classical recordings. Much the same for jazz, I'd think.
  • New artists are announced for The Checkout: Live From 92Y Tribeca: Aaron Parks, Derrick Hodge, Lage Lund, Warren Wolf ... it's like that. You know, of course, that we recorded Ben Williams + Pedro Giraudo on Tuesday.
