It's Take Five Friday and a fresh batch of links for you:
- The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, which has a mission to offer public school-based jazz education programs for young people around the world, has begun a series of online animated Journeys Into Jazz to teach kids about jazz. The host is Herbie Hancock and uses his Memorized Logarhythmic Deporter to Yesteryear (or MeLoDY) to transport kids back to the roots of jazz.
- Just some
Braziliansin a garage on a farm with their guitars and a tractor holding down the beat on Sweet Georgia Brown (with thanks to Mike Kaupa and Carl Atkins). Actually, I have no idea where they're at. I had Brazilian YouTube hijack my browser for awhile... When it happened again this week, I started wondering why all the jazz videos were coming up on Brazil's YouTube.
- The website/blog of the Esencia Latina Radio program on Jazz 90.1, which details everything happening in the world of salsa, merengue, bachata, etc., every Saturday from 6-10am NY Time on Jazz 90.1
- You think I have a lot of links, you should check out the links on Kurt Elling's site.
- A community with some sax appeal ... Saxophone People.
So take five and explore. Let me know what you think in the comments....There will be five more next week.
