Confirmation: Weekly News and Notes
*A local artist made an excellent video that captures the spirit of the American Jazz Museum's "Street Festival" last weekend. It's above. Even though I stood right next to this guy a couple times, I don't make any accidental cameo appearances. His editing skills are commendable. Note that the R&B cover band he identifies as Event is actually Karma.
*Here's the Star's review of the event.
*The Star's Steve Penn addresses progress at 18th & Vine. He touches on related subjects here. Blogger impresario Tony is not a fan.
*The politics of jazz in Kansas City can be unpleasant.
*Joe Klopus considers the American Jazz Museum's future. He quotes museum director Gregory Carroll, who also offers his perspective here.
*I'd like to know more about this Jay McShann film project.
*Lawrence.com offers a Snuff Jazz podcast.
*The Boulevard Big Band has a new release.
*Guitarist Danny Embrey gets a little attention here.
