A few items of interest from around the online jazz world over the long holiday weekend:
*More on the Rene Marie national anthem controversy:
NPR story (includes an interview with Marie)
Marie’s website statement.
*Jazzwax master blogger Marc Myers has struck again–check out the beginning of his interview with legendary drummer Roy Haynes.
*The Bop and Beyond blog has posted a two-part interview with Mosaic Records producer Scott Wenzel, in which he gives some background detail on the research and other labor that goes into a Mosaic set (and also intimates that the label might consider returning to doing vinyl sets as well at some point).
*The Wall Street Journal looks at Indiana native Claude Thornhill and cool jazz.
And finally, a happy centenary to Mr. Louis Jordan.
