It's been a while since our last shameless plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds, and since that last bit of wanton shilling for pageviews, the site has gotten a new look with an easier-to-read layout and some new features.
One thing that hasn't changed, however, is that each day, there's a new online music video posted, drawing on genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental.
Over the last month, featured performers have included Joe Henderson, James Brown, Louis Armstrong, John McLaughlin & 4th Dimension, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, B.B. King, Don Ellis, Colosseum, Ray Charles, Al Kooper & Friends, Miles Davis, McCoy Tyner Trio with Chico Freeman, Mingus Big Band, Bill Withers, Bill Evans Trio, Was (Not Was), John Lee Hooker, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Gentle Giant, Steely Dan, Wes Montgomery, Sonny Rollins, Curved Air, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Elvin Jones Trio, Fela Kuti, Van Morrison, Jon Hendricks, Carla Bley Band, The Neville Brothers, Little Milton, and Woody Shaw.
You still can see all of those clips, plus hundreds more similarly scintillating snippets from the sagaciously selected archives, just by visiting http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
