Philosophy of Jazz


Philosophy of Jazz is a new site—“currently in its initial stages”—on topics at the intersection of jazz and philosophy. The site, created by David C. Ring (Orange Coast College) is set up as an editable wiki, and you can find in the top menu a link to request to become an editor.

In the meanwhile, here are two different excellent jazz tunes that happen to have the same name:
