Words and Music

Speaking of great jazz websites, Rod from Loughborough has a dandy 'un in wordsandmusic. It's just what the title says: thoughtful words on music Rod likes, linked to examples, deep references, and videos.

In his January 24 post, he meanders through Miles Smiles, Harold Land's The Fox (Elmo Hope, yes!), Coltrane's The Believer, and trad revivalist Muggsy Spanier. Oh yes, he ends with a visit to Gil Evans' sublime Out of the Cool.

Learn, listen, enjoy.
