  1. The 1959 Project

    I’m liking this blog, one post per day, about some things from that day in the world of jazz in 1959. Nicely done (aside from the lack of any navigation). (via Kottke)

  2. Ian Penman reviews ‘Mod’ by Richard Weight · LRB 29 August 2013

    This is packed with good stuff. The differences between the fans of trad and modern jazz. Mods as continental modernists, aesthetes. Mods compared to other subcultures. “Tellyology”: shaping history with both eyes on a potential TV series. Ray Davies. Miles Davis. Blur. Noel Gallagaher. Today’s Mod revival as a ploddy “dad rock” conservatism. The British Music Experience.

  3. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Jazz Starter Kit

    One jazz-lover’s guide to getting into jazz, what things to listen to. (I like guides to a field by people who know something, even if it’s impossible to be objective about it.)

  4. Sheet Music Plus - World’s Best Piano Arrangements

    “100 Golden Standards Arranged by the Greatest Pianists of the Century!”

  5. BBC Radio 3 - Building a Jazz Library

    Not as good as the NPR one, and oddly focuses on individual tracks, rather than albums.

  6. NPR Basic Jazz Record Library

    With discussion about each album in audio or transcript form.
