I was browsing Red Rock Eater Digest (link’s on my sidebar) when I came across this link. It’s a page of MP3 downloads from a jazz musician named Steve Coleman. He is the brains behind a concept called m-base which, from what I can tell, is a methodology for composing improvisation, if that’s not too much of an oxymoron.
Well, I don’t know much about it, but what I do know is that his music page has hours of free downloadable jazz MP3’s. What I’ve explored so far is some very respectable bebop and hard-bop. Worth a listen if you’re into jazz. Any piece of music called “The Tao of Mad Phat” should be downloaded for the name alone.
