If we linked to every interesting thing we found in the jazz blogosphere, we'd try your patience. But here are two items we can't help passing along:
- First, in "New Pilots at the Keyboard," New York Times music writer Nate Chinen singles out David Binney Quartet pianist David Virelles as someone who's gone "straight to the top of the class."
- And in an interview with Ottawa Citizen music writer and blogger Peter Hum, 2009 MacArthur "Genius Grant" winner (and former RJA guest) Miguel Zenon holds forth on other contemporary alto saxophonists, including David Binney. (Miguel's a big fan.)
