JAZZ CORNER Lois Gilbert
Ben Allison (site design)
http://www.jazzcorner.com/ A site with a very cool design using Flash. It offers links to musicians' sites, a calendar of jazz events for the U.S.A. as well as for some European countries, a collection of articles and interviews and a board.
JAZZ FORUM ? http://muzyka.onet.pl/jazz_forum.html The famous Polish jazz magazine online. Unfortunately, this site is completely written in Polish language, so most of us will only be able to appreciate some pictures there. I hope they can afford to offer an english version some day...
JAZZHOUSE.org ? http://www.jazzhouse.org/ The site of the Jazz Journalists Association, presided by Howard Mandel. This site offers lots of articles, reviews of miscellaneous jazz events, news, and a department called "The Final Post" mainly maintained by Kenny Mathieson from Scotland, who provides obituaries on jazz musicians having passed away recently.
Jazzinstitut Darmstadt Wolfram Knauer http://www.jazzinstitut.de/ This is the most comprehensive collection of information about the German jazz scene.
It's also Europe's largest public research archive on jazz.
JAZZIZ JAZZIZ http://www.jazziz.com/ In distinction to DOWN BEAT, this magazine's online version offers very few content, but works as a merchandising tool for subscription and online shopping. So this is not really a recommendation.
Jazz Landscapes Kevin Neireiter http://www.jazzlandscapes.com/ You have to have Flash installed. If not, it's time to make up for it. Select "Animations" and then click on the forth picture in the first row (leading to withmiles.html) and be patient. It's not the fastest server in the net. But this interview with Miles Davis is one of the funniest things I happened to find so far. Enjoy!
jazzmatazz Alan Lankin http://home.att.net/~lankina/jazz/ Alan Lankin claims: "Jazzmatazz features the most comprehensive listing of upcoming jazz CDs on the web. The site also features jazz reviews and an extensive list of jazz website links."
jazz-network.com Uwe Leiber
[Manager]
http://www.jazz-network.com/ After lots of easy listening music on a Kenny G level especially from the U.S.A. finally I found a network RADIO offering fine jazz music in superior quality. You need the RealPlayer to enjoy this great service.
Jazz Online ? http://www.jazzonline.com/ Jazz Online claims to be "the world’s first commercial interactive network devoted exclusively to jazz." They offer CD reviews, a department called "Artist Q & A" with short interviews, the "Jazz Messenger" who can be asked questions concerning jazz, and a department called "Jazz 101" with descriptions of jazz styles, and three "Jazz Guides" recommending CDs on different levels of experience with a direct link to Amazon.

jazzreview.com Publisher: Morrice Blackwell
Editor: Samira Elkouh
http://www.jazzreview.com/ Have a look; there are too many departments to report here. But there is one sub-department under "Jazz Spotlight Features" called "JazzViews - Artist Interviews" containing a huge collection of more than 400 interviews.
A new links directory will be activated to the public during the first quarter of 2002.
JazzSteps Todd Williamson http://www.jazzsteps.com/ The most interesting part of this site is the HISTORY department, which tells the story of jazz in the form of a genealogical tree. I did not yet check all it's branches, so have a look youself.
JAZZTHETIK Holger Friese
Christian Iskalla
http://www.jazzthetik.de/ Online version of the German magazine JAZZTHETIK, covering not only jazz, but also contemporary arts, literature and music. The archive goes back to the year 2000 only. You can order a free trial issue.

JAZZthing Martin Laurentius http://www.jazzthing.de/ Online version of the German magazine JAZZthing,
German language
JazzTimes JazzTimes http://www.jazztimes.com/ Leonard Feather's legendary BEFORE & AFTER online. The sound samples delivered together with the comments makes it even more interesting, because nobody really knows every title presented.
You need the RealPlayer to hear the sound samples.
Jazz Weekly Fred Jung http://www.jazzweekly.com/ Fred Jung offers his large collection of FIRESIDE CHATs and CD reviews. In distinction to "digital interviews" this site is still alive. Several of Fred's interview can also be read at Jazz Review [see link ↑ ].
