Mosaic Count Basie and Lester Young, a Charlie Haden Interview, and More

Some jazz news of note from the past week or so…

*Mosaic Records has put up information and a discography for their forthcoming Lester Young and Count Basie set. I was told last week that the Benny Goodman Columbia box is on track for an early-summer release.

*Ethan Iverson of The Bad Plus has posted his recent interview with bassist Charlie Haden, which originally appeared in this past January’s Downbeat.

*The widely-syndicated, Siskel-and-Ebert-style radio jazz program Listen Here! will cease distribution at the end of this month. Word is that NPR’s long-running Jazz Profiles may be wrapping up later this year as well.

*Jazz writer and Rifftides blogger Doug Ramsey reports that there’s a new Dave Brubeck website.
