Beijing jazz, reggae Chinese

Two pieces on Gangstalean Jerry Chan's Beijing music blog:

1. Rockers!
This is about an excellent reggae film. Beijing-based reggae and dub DJ Steve Barker has added a list of reggae songs with China-related titles in the comments section.

2. Beijing's Jazz Scene
A short roundup of jazz musicians active in Beijing by John Campell. Missing from the list is David Moser, a jazz pianist who is also an occasional contributor to Danwei.
