On a day when Good Morning Scotland included a jazz joke – linking out of an interview with some guy called Charlie Parker with the comment “Maybe next time we’ll hear from John Coltrane” – I thought it was time to catch up with some media stuff. (Okay, I didn’t say it was a good jazz joke, but it was the mainstream media at peak breakfast listening time, so anything’s better than nothing). So here are a few recent articles and reviews from elsewhere, in case you missed them:


  • Larry Carlton (Herald)
  • Tony Levin: the Tubby Hayes and Keith Tippett drummer not the King Crimson bass player (The Jazz Breakfast – excellent blog from Birmingham)
