DC Bebop

If you're a Jazz lover, check out DC Bebop, an online magazine dedicated to people, places and happenings on the DC Scene, as well as jazz-related info on the US East, US West and International scenes.

Although my music at my website isn't Jazz, Leon has been gracious enough to put my song, "Come On Up", on his playlist this month. Merci beaucoup! In fact, there's everything from Ghettotech to Alternative on the DC bebop playlist as well.

Today in Jazz: Happy Birthday, Dizzy Gillespie, one of the innovators of bebop and founder of Afro-Cuban jazz! Listen to "Manteca", "Salt Peanuts" and "Bebop" on You Tube.
