Coming down from The Bowl...the Hollywood Bowl and The Playboy Jazz Festival 2012, so we'll be chatting about that some, posting some pictures, talking Jazz, and digging lots of NEW on the show tonight...
  • 2012-06-18 Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library: Lots of great New as usual!
  • Talking 2012 Playboy Jazz Festival: Pat Metheny's new one added this week has Ben Williams playing bass...he played with Christian McBride Big Band who did a tribute to Bill Cosby (his last year, after 30+, hosting PBJF)...although I don't think he played on this tune (so tenuous connection to The New this week!)...LA Times Article Recap with Ben Williams, Cosby, Lionel Loueke and more.

  • Jazz Musician Money Making: Of the many findings, " 1. Jazz musicians have more formal education than most musicians, play many different roles, and have simpler support teams than musicians in other genres." Smarter, Diverse, and Innovative!!
  • Jazzweek.com Jazz Chart June 18 2012: Arturo's New One at #1, Eric Reed's new Monk disc (TNJT interview?) most added...should be in Top 10 next week, PBJF 2012 The Cookers band "Believe" at #15, and lots of other stories. Going to one big Top 10 list this week, with a tune from it somewhere in there...
