Confirmation: Weekly News and Notes
*The Metheny Music Foundation asked Plastic Sax to help spread the word that Friday's benefit concert is sold out. They strongly discourage people without tickets from making the drive to Lee's Summit.
*The local jazz rumor mill suggests that the Plaza III is dropping jazz from its live music format. The club features live music only on weekends and it's more of a social atmosphere than a listening room. Even so, it's a tough blow to the jazz community, especially coming on the heels of the loss of the Phoenix in 2007.
*Clint Ashlock blogs about the Plaza III's rumored format change.
*It looks like Kevin Mahogany is involved in at least two intriguing new projects.
