John is digging up the buried treasures of recorded jazz

It’s easy to find writing about new music – new CD releases, up and coming musicians and bands. They are all here on this blog, just as they are elsewhere.

But what about some treasured sounds from the past? They might be acknowledged and celebrated classics, but sometimes they are unjustly overlooked masterpieces.

cd-kennygarrettJazz photographer and writer John Watson realised when he was listening to Kenny Garrett’s 2003 Warner Bros album, Standard Of Language, that it was an outstanding piece of work. And he thought he’d like to share it with others.

Hence Buried Treasures Of Jazz, a new feature of his website jazzcamera. And you could say that jazzcamera is full of its own buried treasure, too, in the form of archive interviews with Cannonball Adderley, Sonny Rollins and Wayne Shorter. And then there are all those great pictures, of course.
