If I may add my 2 cents:
Section 2 ("B-Splines in a Nutshell") in the article listed below, is in 
my opinion, a good and compact outline of B-Splines.

     * Flexible Smoothing with $B$-splines and Penalties
     * Paul H. C. Eilers, Brian D. Marx
     * Statistical Science, Vol. 11, No. 2 (May, 1996), pp. 89-102

I hope this helps,
