Just a quick glance here... Does anyone really use Real Player anymore??? Not very comprehensive...more like a selected overview of 'household name' artist like Louis or Duke. Good start...more please.

Great collection of some representative information. This site functions more like a teaser than a full-blown learning object. The sound-bites are very few and short, and there are very few links to free online research resources.
Some links (e.g. Link to NPR jazz programs, under "Audio") are broken. I like the simple and consistent design throughout the site.
