, an astounding mp3 blog devoted to mostly out-of-print free jazz and improv records, has been linked a few times on Ask, but never gotten the main-page exposure it deserves. Until now
. The editors' selections are always interesting and written about well, and they're ready to go to the mat
for the music. (The interview with Marsalis
by the Bad Plus to which that's a response is also well worth reading.) But the real impetus for this post is only tangentially related to jazz: recently they got saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa
to do a guest post
on Indian (mostly Carnatic) music, and it won't be long before the links expire. Fall to!
Another tangent: Mahanthappa's frequent collaborator Vijay Ayer somewhat recently Andrew Hill tunes
jazz.com. No downloads here, alas.
