Confirmation: Weekly News & Notes

*Joe Klopus acknowledges the flagging support for Kansas City's jazz scene.

*Steve Paul spotlights ten forthcoming jazz shows. (And don't forget the Plastic Sax Event Calendar.)

*A free MP3 by Dojo is available for download at All About Jazz.

*Jardine's' donor appreciation party for prospective and actual members of the "Society For Charter Members of the New Piano" is scheduled for January 11.

*The Pitch took great pictures of Sunday's gig by the People's Liberation Big Band.

*Pianist Paul Smith, unquestionably one of Kansas City's finest jazz musicians, now has a MySpace page. I won't name names, but it sure would be wonderful if a handful of our town's other notable veterans followed suit.
