It's been kind of a slow news week, and thus posting here at StLJN has been sparse. But if you're still looking for a few minutes of music-related diversion via the 'Net, please check out StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds.
The site features a different, specially selected music video every day, drawn from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental. Recent clips have spotlighted a diverse array of musicians, including Soft Machine, War, James "Blood" Ulmer, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Thelonious Monk, Herbie Mann, Lou Rawls, Art Blakey, Bill Laswell with Jack DeJohnette and Derek Bailey, Dexter Gordon, Cannonball Adderley, John Lee Hooker, The Commodores, Horace Silver, Johnnie Taylor, The Doors, Cecil Taylor, and Sly and the Family Stone.
You can still see all these videos, plus hundreds more from the archives, by visiting http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
