Confirmation: Weekly News and Notes

*Hearne Christopher quotes Jayne McShann on her plans for the Mutual Musicians Foundation in 2008.

*An artist draws on the Foundation.

*Read a one-time Kansas City poet's jazz-inspired efforts here.

*Mr. Marco's V7 make a noirish noise that might appeal to fans of John Zorn, early Weather Report and Sonic Youth. They begin a Wednesday night residency at Davey's tonight.

*Don't ask me to explain the deal with CinemaJAZZ. I don't get it.

*Lee lives! Here are former Kansas Citian Lee Ingall's notes on the past year in jazz.

*Reminders: The tribute to Gregory Hickman-Williams is January 20 at Jardine's. And both Ahmad Jamal and Kevin Hays are at 18th & Vine on January 19.

(How is this original photo of a local mosaic jazz-related? I dunno.)
