Reblogging: More NPR Music Links

Another update of links.

In addition to all the videos I produce for NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert series, I have recently taken over as a producer on NPR Music’s Latin alternative show Alt.Latino. The most recent show from last week was dedicated to the diverse sounds of Chile.

Alt.Latino: All About Chile

Reblogging: A Remembrance, A Weird Sax, And A Song For America

Again, I have a few new things go up this week on NPR:

For NPR’s jazz blog, A Blog Supreme, I wrote a quick blurb about Kansas City artist and musician Mark Southerland, and his incredibly weird saxophone creations.

I also wrote a remembrance of jazz bass legend Ray Brown, who died July 2nd 2002, seven years ago today.

And finally, I shine a spotlight on a song by Talking Heads in honor of the Fourth of July.
