As longtime readers know, whenever there's a momentary lull in the action around here, we like to slip in a shameless plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds, which has been presenting a different online music video every day since long before tumblr popularized the idea of a "single-serve" site.
Drawing from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental, there's a different song or full-length concert posted every day. For example, recent posts have featured music from David Murray & the Black Saint Quartet, Dave Burrell, Carla Bley Band, The Beatles, Oliver Lake Organ Quartet, Sun Ra, Memphis Slim, Branford Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Weather Report, Tony Williams Lifetime, Sonny Rollins, Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, John Coltrane, Ray Charles, Klaus Doldinger & Passport, B.B. King, Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson, Mingus Big Band, Bill Evans Trio, Was (Not Was), Jimmy Witherspoon, and Tower of Power.
If you've missed out so far, not to worry - all these videos, plus hundreds more from the carefully curated archives, are still available for your viewing and listening pleasure by going to http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/
