Confirmation: Weekly News and Notes

*The trailer for Sons of a Hoofer, the new documentary about the McFadden Brothers, is posted at some awesome dude's MySpace page. It's also showing at the American Jazz Museum's site. And I just discovered that the museum has seven original videos available at MySpace.

*The Metheny Music Foundation's site has been updated with photos from their recent fundraising event.

*Mike Metheny is jazzed about his April 29 gig at a Lee's Summit library- "No talking, no smoking, no blenders buzzing during ballads, or spontaneous slow dancing by drunks in heat."

*The Philadelphia Inquirer gives Karrin Allyson's new release a lukewarm review.

*A blogger muses on dining options near the jazz district.

*A smoker teases the Blue Room's long-standing smoking ban in an editorial.
