This is your periodic reminder that my ongoing music review Tumblr Every Damn CD, is well, ongoing… In fact, I have a second Tumblr, Art Rises where I reblog art and stuff from this website gets posted.
After this, more sedate Jazz… http://everydamncd.tumblr.com/post/174436477183/128-miles-davis-on-the-corner

But there’s a problem that’s never quite been satisfied. I had, at one of my old dead blogs, a music… Read More Giving My Tumblr a Purpose
