Improvijazzation Nation, # 164

When the links below are SHADED, they already have content – if not, you’ll need to come back to check it for content (of course, I’ll also be posting the updates on FB, if you prefer to use that method):


REVIEWS– Did 50 reviews for issue # 163, & will continue the increased number until the QUEUE is down under 100; as always, there are a whole host of new artists and products in the queue (if you haven’t seen it yet, you may want to look at my ZZAJ REVIEW QUEUE page, which will show you what’s coming up… this can really be handy for promoters and artists who have sent me review material too)!  If you’re ready to send us review material, it’s always better (& much less expensive) to submit it digitally – send all submissions to please.  As announced in one of my ZzajRant pages (for # 162), I am happy to announce the addition of Jeremy Shaskus as a reviewer (for however long he can devote to it) – please read his reviews and hookup with him on FB, too… he’s a very talented player, too.

INTERVIEW – Our interviewee for this issue is being determined as I write this – if you have any suggestions – email me at

ZZAJRANT – Hey – if YOU would like to rant a bit, shoot me a copy of your RANT… if it’s something I like, I may publish it… all material should be emailed to
