In the meantime

I'm stuck on the damn port manning again, where the computers block streaming media. So, while I rot on Cruise ship X:

The Bad Plus have compiled a great list of Sesame Street videos on YouTube. I'm salivating at the prospect. Darcy also has Stevie doing "Superstitious" for a muppet-filled crowd. I still trip out all these years later about how good, and how sophisticated the Henson stuff is. I think I enjoy it more now than I did as a kid.

Steve Coleman interviews Dave Douglas for Downbeat. The industry stuff is good (but better on an All About Jazz interview which Mwanji has a link to). The one that really interested me was the commentary about Coltrane and voice leading. Really refreshing to hear it put like that.
