No Idle Frets

It's amazing how the web can create a new technology, seemingly overnight. How many people know what a podcast is? Very, very few, I would wager. Well, if you don't know, and you're interested in a definition, click here.

If you'd just like to hear a podcast - the first podcast to be devoted solely to jazz guitar - click here. This podcast, conceived and created by Nick Carver, is excellent, featuring jazz guitarists from all over the country, most of whom haven't quit their day jobs and have no plans to do so anytime soon. I keep wondering how deep the talent pool is, but it may be inexhaustible. Nick is 29 weeks into this weekly show, and he shows no signs of slowing down.

I'll be highlighting the No Idle Frets podcast, and linking to some of the artists featured, in later posts.
