In the course of my regular jazz-blogging duties, I run across lots of online music videos that are worth watching but don't necessarily fit the StLJN format. And so was born StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds, where every day there's a different music video from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock, experimental and more.
In recent weeks, Heliocentric Worlds has featured artists such as Charles Lloyd, B.B. King, Woody Shaw, Thelonious Monk, David Sanborn, Maceo Parker, Traffic, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Stevie Wonder, Billy Cobham and George Duke, Aretha Franklin, Howlin' Wolf, Graham Central Station, Duke Ellington Orchestra, The Crusader with Randy Crawford, Tower of Power, King Crimson, Gato Barbieri, Freddie King, Medeski Martin and Wood, World Saxophone Quartet and Frank Zappa.
You can see all these clips, plus hundreds more, by visiting Heliocentric Worlds at http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com. Better yet, add it to your RSS reader or list of feeds for a daily dose of online music video goodness.
