penguin-guide Penguin Guide to Jazz

This new 9th addition is what I use when I need to research new artist or albums that I am not familiar with. Laid out in “liner notes” fashion which gives a nice amount of info on artist, group, or album. Of course I do not agree with all of the recommendations, some selections are rated lower on their scale and I may prefer that instead of the authors choice based on my personal opinion. Still this is a must for any serious collector. A great source of Jazz history.

This Jazz site from the University of Idaho features an on line archive of some classic photography of Leonard Feather, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, and more. Very interesting and well done web site.
