Two new jazz websites have recently debuted, each offering a different approach. The first, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame, is named after the late Atlantic Records executive (pictured) who championed jazz. It features comprehensive information on the NEJFH’s 30 inductees, including genre greats such as Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane, Django Reinhardt, Coleman Hawkins and Ella Fitzgerald. Specifically, the website will include slideshows, a streaming jukebox that will play songs by the recognized artists and detailed timelines that chronicle the lives of each artist. The website will be updated as new members are inducted to the Nesuhi Ertegun Jazz Hall of Fame.
