Confirmation: Weekly News & Notes
*Angela Hagenbach chats with Joe Klopus about her new album.
*KCJazzLark published a scathing editorial titled "Fairness Folly". His stern lecture makes Plastic Sax seem like a comparative pushover.
*James Hart notes the 29th anniversary of the murder of jazz musician Steve Harvey.
*Jason Harper begins a blindfold test on Pandora's Nolan Gasser with vintage Jay McShann.
*Kansas City is represented several times on The Telegraph's new list of the 100 Best Jazz Recordings.
*Sue Vicory has amassed quite a collection of recent and vintage photos of Kansas City jazz and blues musicians at the Facebook account for her forthcoming documentary.
*Steve Penn notes that Lonnie McFadden is in a film project.
*The Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival hits Sedalia, Missouri, June 2-6, 2010.
*I'm loving my Kansas City Jazz Twitter feed. For those who prefer a version that doesn't include Miles Bonny's incessant stream-of-consciousness postings, I recommend KC Jazz Lark's KC Jazz list.
