I’ve really enjoyed a new website, The 1959 Project, that chronicles the jazz scene in 1959. During that single year some of the great jazz albums, like Kind of Blue and Time Out were recorded. It also was the beginning of the end for jazz as a mainstream popular music. Each day there is a new post about something amazing happening. It’s a great jazz education if that’s your thing. Also, here’s an interesting article on the back story of the website (and related documentary film).
