Every week, they post three mixtapes, each with a different focus.
- one on a classic artist
- one on a contemporary artist
- one on covers of a classic song
I’ve read their blog off and on over the last year… but have become a more frequent visitor since I’ve gotten back into the blogging game. They do their homework and they pick some great subjects. Case in point: last week’s focus on covers of “Giant Steps”.
I think it’s almost blasphemous for anyone to record anything made famous by John Coltrane… but maybe I’ll relax my stance. Some of the featured covers were pretty good, especially Marian McPartland’s jazz piano version. I don’t think I realized how complex in simplicity this song is… or maybe it’s simple in its complexity. Whatever it is... the song is beautiful.
Check out their mixtape it while you can!
