Recently on Heliocentric Worlds

You'd think that at some point, there'd be an end to the vintage footage of various musical performers posted to YouTube. But apparently we are nowhere near that point yet, and as long as rediscovered classic clips and fresh performances by some of the same artists keep turning up, StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds will keep posting them.

Drawing on genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and experimental, posts in the past month have included music from Matthew Shipp, Bill Evans, Duke Ellington Orchestra, Nina Simone, John Zorn's Masada, Blood Sweat and Tears, Clark Terry, James Cotton & Jimmy Rogers, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Roosevelt Sykes, Maceo Parker, John Lee Hooker & Van Morrison, Ken Vandermark's Made to Break, and Warren Zevon... well as Mongo Santamaria, Deep Purple, Sonny Stitt, Nat "King" Cole & Johnny Mercer, Pat Metheny Group, Jimmy Witherspoon, Atomic Rooster, Charles Lloyd, Professor Longhair, Roy Ayers, Dizzy Gillespie Dream Band, The Beatles, Ray Anderson Pocket Brass Band, Count Basie Orchestra, Gerry Hemingway Quintet, Jerry Lee Lewis, Howlin' Wolf, and Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy.

And that's not all - you can see not only these clips, but hundreds and hundreds more from the carefully curated archives, just by visiting
