As happens every couple of weeks around these parts, it's time for another shameless plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds. The premise of the site is simple: a different music video is posted every day, drawn from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental.
Recent posts have included videos featuring Bill Evans, Brian Auger, Art Blakey, Roscoe Mitchell, the Temptations, Louis Armstrong, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Meters, Sam & Dave, Blood Sweat & Tears, Fred Frith, Johnnie Taylor, Roy Ayers, Les McCann, Erroll Garner, Paul Butterfield, Billy Cobham, Mandrill, the Allman Brothers Band, and Ornette Coleman and Prime Time.
All these videos are still available for easy viewing, and you can see hundreds more clips in the archives. It's like a tiny little video "College of Musical Knowledge," right there at your fingertips. To check it out, go to http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
