This week at A Blog Supreme, Patrick Jarenwattananon has brought together a few of the jazz youngsters writing about the music online to recommend recent releases to the listening public. He’s calling it Jazz Now, and I’m honored to be on the list of contributors. They include:
—Patrick Jarenwattananon, NPR Music
—Lucas Gillan, AccuJazz
—Sebastian Helary and Justin Wee, Nextbop
—Dean Christesen, RVAJazz
—Alex Rodriguez, Lubricity (look at me! I’m famous on the Internet!)
—Adam Schatz and James Donahue, Search and Restore
—Lars Gotrich, NPR Music
—Mike Katzif, NPR Music
—Josh Jackson, WBGO
Some other bloggers are already joining the fun: Secret Society and Jazzblog.ca are the first I’ve seen to catch this, but I’m sure many more will follow. This is great company to be keeping — all of these guys really know their stuff.
Like Patrick, I’ll add links as they go live. Again, I’m really excited to be a part of this, and I hope that you take a listen to some of these things. If anything stands out, please let me know in the comments. And if you’re finding Lubricity for the first time, be sure to add me to your RSS reader!
