Inclusion in St. Louis Jazz Notes

I am happy to report that the Red Moon Café and its post titled the Best of Jazz for 2011 , which appears below, has been included among the St Louis Jazz Notes’ list of sites offering the best jazz recordings for 2011. This list includes international sites like London Jazz and Jazz Breakfast and many of those domestic locations like AllAboutJazz and Jazz After Hours . Some of the other sites listed are more regional in their concern with the jazz that has been created by musicians in one location, say, Connecticut, Canada, or Australia. Despite my location, a couple hundred miles or so east of Lebanon, Kansas, the geographic center of the contiguous United States, my list contains jazz created in Iceland, Norway, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Slovakia, and the United Kingdom, proving, once again, how jazz truly is international.

Let's hope that 2012 offers a lot of good jazz.
