Confirmation: Weekly News & Notes
*Joe Klopus surveys the week’s jazz calendar for The Kansas City Star.
*The Campus Ledger reports on the first concert of the season in Johnson County Community College's annual jazz series.
*A music blog praised Eddie Moore and the Outer Circle’s Kings & Queens.
*Downbeat catches up with Pat Metheny.
*Tweet o’ the Week: Dominique Sanders- Been a 100% full time musician for 4 years now!!! CRAZY time flys!!
*Comment o’ the Week: Anonymous- I think your first sentence should read, "Jazz musicians and jazz presenters often decry lack of support for live JAZZ performances." I doubt any of them are unaware of how many tickets are sold to the Dixie Chicks, rap concerts, etc. None of this is surprising... jazz is an acquired taste that not many have acquired.
