jazz and blogs #7

Matana Roberts
Less for the blog (though there are some interesting things there) than for the samples on the main MySpace page. I saw her once with Sticks & Stones, she's a great player with a beautiful tone. The AACM's motto could also be "tradition without convention" and Roberts emobdies that.

School For Improvisation podcasts
Interviews with and music by improvisers. Currently: Vijay Iyer.

An interesting shuffle through one music listener's collection.

Chants Ethérés
Magnifiques chroniques d'albums neufs et anciens, bien connus ou beaucoup moins.

A veritable deluge of classic albums to download. In english, despite the name.

jazz e arredores
A sombre de Ra. Nova musica.

Un fanatique d'Horace Tapscott, au nom de blog suspicieusement proche du mien...

Musicians Moments
Ce que dit le titre, mais en français.

Canberra Jazz Blog
Jazz down under

Improvisations on a Theme
Guitar graduate student.

My jazz guitar journey

Jazz Elements
A Canadian focus.
