Smithsonian Folkways to release jazz anthology; Dismemberment Plan will play "Fallon"; Carrie Underwood wins at ACAs
- Smithsonian Folkways will release a sprawling, 6-CD jazz box set that explores more than 100 years of the genre. "JAZZ: The Smithsonian Anthology," will be released on March 29, 2011 and will include "ragtime, New Orleans, swing, bebop, hard bop, cool, modal, free, fusion, Latin" and more. Jazz titans are heavily featured on the collection, which will also include a 200-page book. The collection features multiple tracks from Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Art Blakey and John Coltrane. A full track listing can be found here.
- The Dismemberment Plan's highly-anticipated reunion tour kicks off with a sold-out show on Jan. 21 at the Black Cat, but everyone will be able to get a glimpse of the band the night before on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon." It's the same approach used by fellow D.C. rockers Jawbox a year ago.
- Another award show, more victories for Carrie Underwood. The country prom queen won artist of the year at the inaugural American Country Awards held in Las Vegas on Monday night. Winners were determined by fan voting, something the former "American Idol" champ has plenty of experience with. Other big winners included Lady Antebellum and Easton Corbin.
