General Discussion / Jazz Hero Videos
« on: January 28, 2014, 08:58:22 AM »
Every year, a number of cities or venues announce a local 'Jazz Hero', an individual who has dedicated an extended amount of time and effort for the promotion or playing of jazz.  This thread will celebrate as many of those as we can find.  So, how about it?  Have any jazz heroes in your neighborhood?

General Discussion / History Of The Flute
« on: October 07, 2013, 10:07:39 AM »
This is a really interesting lecture talking about the history of the flute.  They show a picture of a flute that was made out of a piece of bone 45,000 years ago.  The lecture is an hour long, but it is a well spent hour.

General Discussion / Best New Group
« on: August 12, 2013, 01:45:41 PM »
Okay, let's hear your thoughts.  Best new group you've run across this year?

Not a jazz group, but I really enjoyed watching The Whipstitch Sallies perform earlier this year.  Great vocals, highly skilled players.  As for Jazz group?  I have not run across a new one this year, just yet, but I am on the hunt.
