Links

 

Here are some cool jazz links I have found on the web.  In addition to these, if you go to the Dudes I Dig section, there are additional links under each musician's biography.  If you know of some more cool ones, please e-mail me!  Note: Since these are external links, they will open up in a new window.  I cannot guarantee that they are alive.  I check them from time to time, but not THAT frequently.  If the link is dead and you want to learn more, I recommend using a good search engine.
