It's officially summer, and so it's as good a time as any for another shameless plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds. The premise is simple: there's a different music video posted each day, drawn from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental. Think of it as extension course in the College of Musical Knowledge, presented one video at a time.
Recent posts have featured video performances by Jimmy Smith, Steely Dan, Don Cherry, David Sanborn, Grover Washington Jr., Dexter Gordon & Benny Bailey, Ry Cooder, Tower of Power, Bill Evans, Santana, Gerry Mulligan, Stanley Turrentine, Earth Wind and Fire, Hound Dog Taylor, Hawkwind, Carla Bley Trio, J Geils Band, Erroll Garner, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Billy Bang Quintet, Solomon Burke and Marion Brown.
You can see them all, plus hundreds more specially selected videos from the archives, simply by visiting http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
