Yes, we were on All Things Considered today -- if you missed the segment, you can stream it from here -- albeit with a slightly edited lead-in... in the original broadcast, consummate pro Robert Siegel improbably stumbled over my humble Irish surname. But he nailed "Patrick Jarenwattananon" -- and speak of the devil, why look here's Patrick's extended interview with me, over on A Blog Supreme.
The interview was recorded in March, which is like three million years ago in blog time. One thing in particular that's changed since then is that the jazz blogosphere as undergone a kind of Cambrian explosion -- many new jazz-oriented blogs (like, say, A Blog Supreme) have started since then and there is finally a real sense of inter-blog conversation going on. This is new.
Also, all these new kids picking up the slack helps me feel less guilty about the lack of substantial posting on my part -- ever since the record came out the flurry of Society-related activity has got me feeling a bit like Ray Liotta at the end of Goodfellas. Only without the cocaine. Anyway, I'm currently knee-deep in the preparations for next week's Brooklyn Big Band Bonanza and CMJ Showcase but look forward to jumping back into the fray in the not-too-distant future.
Oh, and if you have perchance come here looking to purchase our debut recording, Infernal Machines, well... CDs can be had immediately from New Amsterdam Records (includes instant access to MP3s as well) or backordered from Amazon.com (projected shipping date is Oct. 27). Digital versions available pretty much everywhere, including iTunes, eMusic, and Amazon.
