In meandering around the web in relation to finding some new Best of 2006 lists, I ran across the blog St. Louis Jazz Notes, which includes news, reviews, commentary and links related to jazz, improvisation and creative music in St. Louis, Missouri. While few of us here in Rochester are likely to get out to St. Louis, I encourage you to take a look at Dean Minderman's blog. He and I take a similar approach and, coincidentally, have been at it about the same length of time. Moreover, he linked to the first version of this blog a month before we switched to the new version. Like Rochester, St. Louis appears to have a vibrant jazz scene.
I will from time to time highlight other jazz blogs like St. Louis Jazz Notes to provide you with some resources in case you are traveling to another city and want to read up on what's going on in jazz at your destination city. I'm starting with Mr. Minderman's blog as he has already collected a great number of links, from which I hope he doesn't mind if I pull some from time to time (as well as some of his other ideas in organizing and collecting information on his blog). However, I hope he updates his link to me sometime!
