Though the early summer heat may be oppressive in many parts of USA, StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds is still a cool place to hang out and watch some online music videos. Each day brings a different clip, featuring some of the all-time greats in genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental.
For example, recent posts have included video performances by B.B. King, Colosseum, Ray Charles, Deodato, Charlie Parker, McCoy Tyner Trio with Chico Freeman, Mingus Big Band, Gene Harris, Bill Evans, Was (Not Was), Jimmy Witherspoon, Roy Hargrove and the WDR Big Band, Sonny Rollins, Steely Dan, Wes Montgomery, Bob Dylan, Count Basie, Fred Wesley and the New JBs, Taj Mahal, Elvin Jones, Fela Kuti, Otis Redding, and Jon Hendricks.
If you've somehow managed to miss out on all this until now, not to worry. You still can see all these videos, plus hundreds more carefully curated clips from the astounding archives, simply by going to http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
