The Read: June 25, 2012

Some things from recent weeks that are worth your attention, if you haven’t found them already:

1. The recent SF Offside festival got a shout-out from NPR, in a story about grass-roots jazz efforts. An L.A. festival and record label also get listed, as does NYC’s club Small’s (highlighted here), which videocasts and archives its nightly concerts. (h/t: Alex Pinto, @pintobeans2885)

2. The AUM Fidelity label is turning 15 — congratulations to Steven Jeorg, who’s steadily serviced college radio with his releases. The Village Voice interviewed musicians for a nice oral history of the label. (h/t: Avant Music News and Improvised Communications)

3. Remember the thing about Vijay Anderson going to the Novaro Jazz Festival? It happened. I can’t read Italian, but here’s one report with a nice picture (stolen for use here).
