Jazz fan?

It's a slow week here at m-pyre...because it's a pretty hectic one everywhere else for the three m's. But I wanted to point you all to something that'll keep you busy, if you're a jazz lover anyway.

Check out this radio series that aired in 2006 on KUNM that has an amazing collection of interviews and music clips of jazz musicians living in New Mexico.

I found that while checking out the NPR website that featured Albuquerque's jazz scene Monday night, describing the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, and the Outpost Performance Space.

The Jazz Workshop is the non-profit behind the two week New Mexico Jazz Festival, which is underway right now, plus a summer-long music series that happens every year.
