It's time once again for another shameless plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds, a virtual grad-level course in the college of musical knowledge delivered one music video at a time.
Each day, there's a new clip posted, featuring the greatest players of jazz, blues, soul funk, classic rock, prog rock, experimental music and more. Recent posts have include videos of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, Stanley Turrentine, The Fugs, Otis Spann, Borbetomagus, Louis Armstrong & Jack Teagarden, J Geils Band, Gene Harris, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Matthew Shipp, John Scofield & Medeski, Martin & Wood, B.B. King, Sonny Rollins, Aretha Franklin, Bill Bruford Band, World Saxophone Quartet, Dave Douglas & Brass Ecstasy, and more.
They're all still there waiting for you, along with nearly 1,500 more videos specially selected - as they used to say back in the day - to unwind your mind and rethread your head. Go to http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/ and turn it up!
