If you have the hardware, http://www.wwoz.org broadcasts the music
of New Orleans and the Carribean worldwide on the web. All volunteer,
no commercials, some truly unusual and very deep programming. Lots of
Brazilian and Carribean, reggae so great you never knew it could be
possible, obscure blues and rock and roll from the Delta ca. 1950s,
and of course jazz. From Jelly Roll to five minutes ago. And the
musicians drop in and argue about it on air.
Today this woman was scatting the Bolereo a capella. Could you ever
have imagined such a thing? Just amazing! OZ is great studio music
because it’s a continuous stream of art being pumped through your
head. How cool is that? And who else will spend the afternoon
explaining what John Coltrane was up to so you’ll get it and your
life will be the richer for it?
OZ isn’t for eveyone, but try it and see. All that Wyndham hill
stuff is very nice, but I need more real passion than that. And I
hate to change CDs when I’m busy.
Thank you for the link. A great site! Hanuman
