Confirmation: Weekly News & Notes
*A very nice interview with Bobby Watson was conducted by NPR's A Blog Supreme. (Initial tip via KCJazzLark.) Watson is also the subject of a fine video interview here. Watson's new album, The Gates BBQ Suite, is available at his Facebook account.
*The Prairie Village Jazz Festival is admired by KCJazzLark. The Prairie Village Post offers a recap.
*Jazz Times reviewed the new album by Dan Gailey, a professor at The University of Kansas.
*The unfortunately-named The Sound offers archived footage of its live video stream from the Mutual Musicians Foundation. The group also held a meeting.
*The Star offers a review of a concert by The Kansas City Jazz Orchestra.
*I've bashed the guys repeatedly for not having their own site, so it's only fair that I note that the excellent all-star band Crosscurrent recently remedied that situation. They're also on Facebook.
*A member of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy participated in a video interview to promote his band's forthcoming concert at the Lied Center. (Tip via KC Stage Blog.)
