One of my very favorite jazz blogs is JazzWax, a creation of Marc Meyers, who also writes for the Wall Street Journal. Meyers has a new book out from the University of California Press, Why Jazz Happened. He's also come out with a series of videos and blog entries to explain many of the ideas behind his social history of the music. You can check out JazzWax for a full treatment, or simply watch the first video below. Meyers and Why Jazz Happened will be the subject of Passing Notes next week.
