Jazz on Twitter: What You Might Have Missed
I’ve been tweeting on Twitter for a few months now. I find that it’s the easiest and fastest way for me to communicate news and other contemporary jazz items of interest. There is a good community of jazz fans on Twitter. I keep a constant search on for ‘jazz’ and am inspired to see it update so frequently. Even if you filter out tweets mentioning “jazz hands” and “all that jazz,” there is a considerable amount of people talking jazz.
I keep a list of my most recent tweets here on the site, but you might have missed a few things of interest. Among my nearly 350 updates, I’ve reported:
- New Rick Braun recording, All It Takes, out on July 28. Trumpeter worked w/ Philippe Saisse on it.

Twitter isn’t a fad. It’s here to stay and I’m happy to have this way to share information. Follow me!
