Additional Portals[edit]

The Wikipedia:WikiProject Jazz page has a boxed link to the Portal:Jazz page. Following up on an article on the latest Signpost, I noticed that several additional relevant portals have been created recently, for example Portal:Louis Armstrong, Portal:Duke Ellington, Portal:Benny_Goodman, Portal:Dizzy Gillespie, Portal:Charlie_Parker. (Portal:Miles Davis predated this expansion.) AllyD (talk) 17:19, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Portal:Benny Goodman has been nominated for deletion again. Members of this project may be interested in improving the portal or contributing at its MfD. Certes (talk) 16:37, 2 April 2019 (UTC)

Help with Jazz Age Page[edit]

I am working on the Jazz Age page right now, and I would appreciate any guidance and/or help with editing some of the sections. I have posted in the Jazz Age talk page some of my suggestions for improvement, and I have started implementing some of the changes already. One of my main goals is to make the Jazz Age page more consistent and cohesive with the Jazz Age section in the Jazz page. Please let me know your thoughts on the proposed changes, or if you think I should consider something else while working on the page. Thanks! Srob21 (talk) 17:22, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Template:Chick Corea[edit]

I have tried to edit Template:Chick Corea by adding the albums' recording & release dates and adding artists, who have recorded more than one record with Chick Corea.

The template seems to accept only 20 groups (to |group20 = with
Wayne Shorter) and now the groups 21-23 (|group21 = with
others |group22 = Compilations |group23 = Soundtracks) are not visible so what should be done with this problem?

Probably remove all of the sideman recordings, or put them all together. There's a Chick Corea discography anyway, so I don't see much value in putting the same information in a different format (a template). I think that Philip Cross does a lot with musician templates, so he might be the best person to comment on what's normally included. EddieHugh (talk) 21:33, 19 April 2019 (UTC)
