Jazz of the Future



RIP George Russell.

RIP, also, to the days when jazz could be the subject of its own television show, in which viewers would be invited to understand its present and ponder its future. You know: the good old forward-thinking days.

(Now that the future is here, does that sort of old-time optimism seem quaint to you? I sure hope not. Even the future needs a future.)

I don't believe there are any free album download blogs in your blogroll. Any reason?

Not really. I do frequent them, and had a few of them listed here for a while, but eventually I got to the point where I felt the blogroll was getting too cluttered. I listed the Hype Machine (an aggregator) as a (lame) solution to that problem.
