There was a very nice post on the Princeton Record Exchange's blog about a concert by the trumpeter Ron Horton, honoring the music of Andrew Hill: "The musicians at Friday’s concert were something of an all-star group on the current scene: Ron Horton, trumpet/flugelhorn, Scott Robinson, tenor saxophone, Ben Allison, double-bass, Frank Kimbrough, piano, and, Tim Horner, drums. Tony Malaby on sax was originally scheduled to perform, but the audience was told that he had a “medicial emergency” and could not appear."

Big Road Blues has a wonderful profile including several mp3's of early bluesman Sylvester Weaver: :The man who introduced the guitar on record was the remarkable guitarist Sylvester Weaver, a man of many talents who cut a significant body of work at the dawn of the blues recording era but remains little remembered today."
