Here's the latest wrap-up of assorted links and short local news items of interest:
* The latest posthumous Miles Davis CD release, Miles Davis Quintet - Live In Europe 1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 2, came out this week to favorable reviews from, among others, NPR, AllAboutJazz.com and Pitchfork.
* While in St. Louis last month to play at the Bistro, The Bad Plus' pianist Ethan Iverson took a shopping trip to Euclid Records to buy some jazz vinyl, and now he's documented his finds (with some good-natured grumbling about having spent too much money) in a blog post here. Euclid also made the news recently via their New Orleans branch store, which, thanks to its hot-pink exterior, was named one of The Most Beautiful Record Stores in the World by Flavorwire.
* Celebrating 50 years in business, Granite City music store owner John Fornaszewski was profiled by the Suburban Journals.
