Night Lights Classic Jazz

Regional jazz sites

regional jazz sitesFollowing up on recent posts about the rise and fall of the Indiana Avenue jazz scene in Indianapolis, I’ve started a new category on the links page for websites devoted to significant jazz cities or regions and their histories. Nat Hentoff touched on this topic last summer in his JazzTimes column “Final Chorus” and again in the most recent issue. (Very glad to see Joe Mosbrook’s Cleveland work getting such high-profile praise; Joe provided immense help for the Night Lights program devoted to Freddie Webster.) If you know of any other good regional jazz sites, please drop a link in the comments field below and I’ll add them to the list.

And speaking of Indiana Avenue–check out Mark Myers’ recent musings on The Incredible Jazz Guitar of Wes Montgomery.
