*Justin Binek and John Stafford discussed Kansas City Kansas Community College’s jazz program on a morning television program.
*Jefferson City’s News Tribune published an article about Mike Ning.
*Milt Abel, Jr. recalls his father in a profile at The Daily Beast.
*Tweet o’ the Week: Drew Williams- How wild is it that in New York, there are entire jazz scenes that think music made after 1940 is way too hip??? Like, if your pants don’t go up to your nipples, what are you even doing?
