Jazzcorner and Bluegum

Two newish sites that I hope you’ll visit as they promise to be forums for intelligent conversation via music:

- Jazzcorner’s Speakeasy: From the fine jazz website comes this message board with Top 10’s, reviews and discussions about ECM Records, Musicians Resources, festivals, politics, classifieds and even a place to chat with jazz musicians.  Great idea and it’s already getting a lot of traffic (thousands of posts there at last count).

- Bluegum blog courtesy of “black rock critic Kandia Crazy Horse & performance studies scholar Tavia Nyong’o” where they’re now discussing the recent Black Performance Theory conference.  Admittedly, I work with KCH sometimes at my zine but even if I didn’t, I’d still be a fan of her ultra-thoughtful critical work.
