Links to interviews: If you're looking for a specific JazzWax interview or want to see who else has endured my badgering questions, you no longer have to hunt through the site.
Simply look down the right-hand column (under the album covers). There, you'll find a list of links to artist interviews. If you click on an artist and see only Part 1 of the interview, look at the top of the page. You should see a link to the next part. If you don't see a link, return to the list and click on the next entry for the artist.
Sites for jazz musicians: Not a week goes by without a jazz musician telling me, ruefully, "I'd love a website but I'm too busy and have no idea how to create one."
If you're a jazz musician, you no longer have an excuse.
JazzCorner.com—a company created in 1996 by Lois Gilbert, a former jazz DJ and darn nice person—can do it all for you. In fact, her company has designed and hosts the websites of 250 musicians—including Clark Terry, Randy Brecker, Steve Turre, Kenny Barron and the Thelonious Monk Institute.
To learn more, go here and click on "Contact."
Laughing matter: Speaking of JazzCorner.com, the site features a section that lets anyone in cyberspace weigh in on a range of jazz-related subjects. For a light moment, follow these steps:
- Go here
- Scroll down and click on "The Top 10: Your Jazz lists and jazz polls go here."
- Next, scroll down and click on "Top 10 Cheesiest Album Covers."
There you'll see five pages of submissions that I think you'll find are pretty tough to beat.
