Smile Education/personal enjoyment - Free podcasts for "Jazz Insights"

Howdy friends,

Another musician friend put me on to this podcast for "Jazz Insights" by Dr. Gordon Vernick. Excellent stuff! It's free, and very informative, not to mention some excellent music, some of which is very hard to find. If you want to dig in a bit more into the history of jazz, and learn about the greats who are still "quoted" as well as the greats who have been lost to time, this is a really cool podcast. You can get it with iTunes, or if you have an add-on like "Download Helper" (Firefox), you can play the files and download them without having to use iTunes.

Then, you can search for MIDI files of the tunes you like, and use Musician or Composer to learn to play them yourself

Enjoy!
Sherry
