Destination Out celebrates Ornette Coleman's birthday with a guest post from Ethan Iverson, and a couple of mp3's from the criminally out of print Coleman LP Crisis:

"...well, today’s a national–nay, world–holiday. It’s Ornette Coleman’s birthday. To celebrate, we have the privilege and pleasure of presenting another wonderful guest post by Ethan Iverson. Great music, great writing–it’s as if it’s our birthday. Anyway, best wishes to OC, and many happy returns."

Illasounds is back online with their technical problems ironed out, and they are presenting an interesting podcast on British jazz entitled Bop in Britian:

"Modern jazz from the U.K., 1953- 1968 featuring Tubby Hayes (above), Ronnie Scott, Victor Feldman, Stan Tracey, Joe Harriott, Dizzy Reece, Don Rendell, Ian Carr, Ronnie Ross, Wilton 'Bogey' Gaynair, Jimmy Deuchar and Tony Crombie."
