Wait wait wait - Jeb was in Corrosion of Conformity?  The metal band with the 
great Pepper Kiernan?  Totally excellent.

And Jeb's trombone work, either with the V5, the Lucky Seven, or others is 
excellent.

Chicago-based trombonist Jeb Bishop is from Raleigh. I met him when he was a
high school student and a guitarist for a band called "Corrosion of
Conformity."  Several years ago Jeb was recruited into the Vandermark 5 as a
guitarist. It was only after joining the V5 that Ken Vandermark discovered
that Jeb also plays the trombone (an understatement).  After hearing him on
'bone, Vandermark asked him to switch to that instrument exclusively.  In
addition to the collaborations mentioned in Dan Polletta's post, Jeb also
collaborates with Keefe Jackson and many other Chicago-based musicians, some
of which is on Delmark.  There are many great Jeb Bishop recordings
available, most of which are likely never going to be mailed to stations as
part of a promo campaign. Whether it's "inside" or "outside" playing, Jeb
Bishop is a trombonist we should all be aware of.  Anyone wanting to find
out more about this prodigious player should feel free to contact me
off-list.

This week's sponsor:  Detroit Jazz Festival's JazzPlanet tv.

In partnership with Show Ads Network, Livestream.com and Detroit Public 
Television, DJF's Jazz Planet stage at Campus Martius will stream via the web 
what is cool about Detroit and in particular, Detroit Jazz Fest, in real time.  
Users around the globe - artists as well as fans - will be able to Skype, tweet 
and Facebook messages to fans, artists and media hosts in Detroit through 
detroitjazzfest.com and DJF social media networks.

Viewers everywhere - from London to Afghanistan - will experience the uniqueness 
of the world's largest free jazz festival, how it blends urban chic and a hip 
and diverse audience with some of the best music on the planet. "It will be fun, 
spontaneous, and capture the unique vibe of the festival that Russ Davis (Voice 
of America) described as "Jazz Disneyland" last year," says Festival Director 
Terri Pontremoli.

The format of the programming allows artists to share some of their special 
projects - not only the performances - but what inspired and what went into 
their works, with hundreds of thousands of people on the web. This broad-ranging 
exposure may result in more performance opportunities and increased cd sales. 
"It not only showcases the greatness of Detroit and the Jazz Fest, but perhaps 
more importantly, nurtures the art form in ways we could only dream of a few 
years ago," added Pontremoli. "Outside of being here, it's the best seat on the 
planet!"
