Blogging Musicians

I wish more musicians took the time to have a weblog... it's a great way for them to get their ideas out and interact with other musicians and fans with little cost except time, which is at a premium for musicians like everybody else, I guess! Here are a couple of musician blogs I enjoy:

Gary Lucas: Lucas is a musical renaissance man, playing everything from jazz to blues to rock and everything in between. He currently leads the wonderful Captain Beefheart tribute band Fast 'n' Bulbous in addition to other musical projects.

Jessica Williams' The Zone: Williams is a very highly regarded jazz pianist and composer currently recording for the Max Jazz label. I discovered her blog through the jazz blog Rifftides.

Listening to: Rashanim - Masada Rock (Tzadik, 2005)
