Recently on Heliocentric Worlds

As regular readers know, around here we like to slip in the occasional gratuitous plug for StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds, which features a daily online music video from the greats of jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock and/or experimental music.

What sort of musicians are featured? This month, posts have included live performance clips from Jimmy McGriff, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Jack Bruce & Friends, King Curtis & Champion Jack Dupree, the Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Sun Ra Arkestra, Hank Jones, Sarah Vaughan, Reuben Wilson, Ginger Baker's Air Force, Herbie Hancock & Mwandishi, Groove Collective, Solomon Burke, Frank Zappa, Arthur Blythe, Albert King, Lou Donaldson, Johnny Taylor, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Clark Terry, Fats Domino, and Gateway, featuring Jack DeJohnnette, Dave Holland and John Abercrombie.

In addition to these, there are a couple thousand more carefully curated clips in the archives, which you can investigae either by artist or chronologically. Add it all up, and it's like a video "College of Musical Knowledge," accessible to any and all who care to visit http://heliocentricworlds.blogspot.com/.
