Recently on Heliocentric Worlds

With a name inspired by a classic Sun Ra album, StLJN's sibling site Heliocentric Worlds is devoted to exploring the universe of sound via a daily music video drawn from genres including jazz, blues, soul, funk, classic rock, prog rock, experimental, and more.

There have been some especially choice videos posted over the past month, including a number of complete shows, by artists including Betty Carter, Tom Waits, Coleman Hawkins, MC5, Chico Hamilton, Nat "King" Cole, Eddie Harris, the Young Rascals, Ray Bryant, Cecil Taylor, Groove Collective, Elvin Jones, Supersax, Jaco Pastorius Big Band, Sun Ra Arkestra, Miles Davis, Steve Coleman & Five Elements, Gil Evans Orchestra, Max Roach, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Lou Donaldson, Buddy Miles, Traffic, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tony Bennett, Don Cherry's Multikulti, Medeski Martin & Wood, Archie Shepp, Van Morrison, Art Blakey & Tony Williams, and Duke Ellington.

Sure, you could just start randomly searching YouTube in hopes that you'll find something good, but separating the wheat from the chaff there can be a challenge. Instead, you can see all these videos, plus thousands more carefully curated clips right away just by visiting
