A new web service, FindTheBest.com, contacted me and other jazz bloggers about their Jazz Clubs listings. I get contacted by a lot of these types of sites, but FindTheBest was quite different so I'm passing it along. FindTheBest proposes to present users with the data-driven facts stripped of influence by marketing, which is often found on "pay-to-play" consumer comparison sites. This fits with my philosophy of presenting information and letting your informed decisions, rather than deciding what is "good" for you. Information is presented in tables with smart filters to help you drill down to what's important to you. There are a number of subdomains for different types of information, including Jazz Clubs:
If you register as a user, you can propose additions (perhaps like some jazz clubs in and around Rochester and Western New York, which are woefully absent from FTB's jazz clubs listings?). Proposed changes will be reviewed by FindTheBest staff for accuracy and approved or rejected accordingly.
