completely subjective blog of music reviews covering mostly jazz and blues but branching out into other genres as well."
True to to his word, Niland covers a variety of music, including new releases, reissues and older catalog albums. He's prolific, too, posting several times a week. While, as with any individual writer, critic, blogger, etc, one may disagree with Niland's opinions on a a given record or artist, his straightforward, concise style is always eminently readable. You'll find Jazz and Blues Music Reviews at http://jazzandblues.blogspot.com/
The StLJN jazz site of the week is, as the name implies, a weekly feature, created to call attention to Web sites that jazz enthusiasts may find useful, informative and/or entertaining. Having already featured many (but by no means all) of my personal favorites over the last several months, I'm looking for more worthy sites to include in the future. Do you have a favorite jazz- or creative music-related Web site or blog that's yet to be mentioned? If so, please feel free to make suggestions in the comments, or send an email with your recommendation to stljazznotes (at) yahoo (dot) com.
