I'm not really too crazy about the whole Myspace phenomenon, but it does offer musicians an easy and low cost way to have a web presence and to make their music available to a wider audience. Two of my favorite musicians have recently opened Myspace sites:
Billy Bang: "The violin is hardly the first instrument that comes to mind when you think about jazz, but that's never daunted Billy Bang, one of the instrument's most adventurous exponents."
David Murray: "David Murray (tenor saxophone and bass clarinet) is a Jazz artist who has recorded over 130 albums, including 2 recorded in 2006 (Gwotet and Pushkin) and a forthcoming album to be released in Summer 2007."
