I'm not in Paris, but Charlottesville is pretty nice in April, too. Time for some links to wash away the Monday.
- Ethan Iverson on Mal Waldron. I may say this too often, but it bears repeating: if more musicians shared Iverson's zeal for writing, the world (and internet) would be a better place.
- Is Dr. Teeth a jazz muppet? An excellent post with equally incisive comments (mine excluded).
- Pat Metheny discusses Orchestrion with Philip Booth. I will be reviewing the album and revisiting this Metheny post soon.
- Bop and Beyond is reconsidering the music of Lee Morgan. I was a bit surprised that Christopher did not care for The Sidewinder, but share his enthusiasm for Search for the New Land. Here's Part 2.
- Josh Jackson interviewed Randy Weston last week.
- Jason Parker issued a thoughful piece of media criticism over the weekend.
