So What: Local News, Notes & Links

Here's the latest wrap-up of assorted links and short local news items of interest:

* Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra are returning to St. Louis for a performance this Friday night at the Sheldon Concert Hall, and the Post-Dispatch's Calvin Wilson has an interview with Marsalis here.

* Fans of legendary trumpeter and St. Louis native Clark Terry will be glad to know that his book Clark: The Autobiography of Clark Terry (pictured) is shipping now, and should be available at your favorite bookstore or online retailer soon. If you order a copy from Amazon.com using this link, StLJN gets a small (as in "a few cents") commission.

* The University City edition of Patch.com has coverage of last Saturday's U City Jazz Festival here, and a story about a proclamation from the U. City mayor honoring singer Jeanne Trevor here. Also, if you have a Facebook account, you can see some pictures of the event, posted by Jason Church of Smooth Jazz 96.3 HD-3 on his Facebook page here. UCJF organizer Mike Silverman told StLJN that plans already are underway for next year's festival.
