Confirmation: Weekly News and Notes
*Those who appreciate Kansas City's several outstanding jazz guitarists are advised to check out Wichita's Jerry Hahn. He plays like an angry Jim Hall (that's a compliment) in this 2006 performance at Jardine's. The video also features an excellent Joe Cartwright solo. Hahn plays the Blue Room on November 19.
*Sometime Plastic Sax contributor Dan Jaffe is profiled in a Florida newspaper.
*Our old friend Lee turned me on to a 14-second clip of live jazz at YJ's.
*The Star reports on a jazz-related art project downtown.
*The UMKC student paper reviews a night at the Blue Room.
*Add Weather Channel viewers to the long list of people who hate Charlie Parker's music.
*Don't forget that Bill Charlap, the "new Bill Evans," headlines at the Folly Theater this Friday.
