jazz and blogs #5

A fellowship of contemporary "big band" composers. If I understand correctly, within Pulse are writing for a strings 'n' horns (no drums) ensemble. Some (too brief!) sound clips.

Pulse member Darcy James Argue has contributed some necessary rectifying info in the comments.

Bugge's Room
Sort of same concept as Dave Douglas's Greenleaf, but with Bugge Wesseltoft instead of Dave Douglas.

In French, mp3s and commentary.

Brett Primack's All About Jazz Podcast

Draai Om Je Oren
In Dutch, so a good excuse to work on your language skills.

On the avant/contemporary side of things.

Jazz Brew
A trumpeter/reviewer.

Jazz & Belette
Enthusiastic and in French.
