More on Rene Marie, Jazzwax's interview with Roy Haynes, Claude Thornhill in the Wall Street Journal, and inside comments from Mosaic's Scott Wenzel

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.

*Volkher Hofmann has written a detailed, interesting remembrance and profile of drummer Ed Thigpen (best known for his stay in the Oscar Peterson trio) over at his Living With Music blog.

And finally, a happy centenary to Mr. Louis Jordan.
