Here are some interesting links I found while trawling the musical blogosphere:
Destination Out has had a series of wonderful posts, with essays and mp3's from Jeanne Lee with Sam Rivers, Sun Ra and Larry Young. Also check out their Twitter feed.
George Colligan reminisces about some of the tough experiences as a young musician that prepared him for his career.
NPR has streamable and downloadable concerts from the recent Newport Jazz Festival.
Hank Stheamer has another Heavy Metal Bebop interview, chronicling where jazz and metal come together.
