Here are some a few interesting jazz-related tidbits from last week.
- The pairing of the music of John Coltrane and Johann Sebastian Bach.
- Jazz in Scotland. Or, Scottish Jazz.
- The casting of Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker in a new film about the trumpeters life. With this movie and the Miles Davis, several mainstream movies focusing on jazz musicians will attract national attention.
- I didn’t know that a visit to jazzed.com will redirect you to eHarmony. Jazzed!
- A new jazz venue in St. Louis!
- The use of Louis Armstrong during meal-service on flights. Bizarre. But yet somewhat interesting. Which meal does Don Cherry get paired with?
- The Downbeat Readers Poll results. Always a little weird.
