Read, Music Biz Handbook; Listen, New Music

A good read at BerkleeMusic.com. The Music Business Handbook is a downloadable PDF you can get by giving them your email — which I believe is part of the second chapter, Direct To Fan. It’s a good overview of what kind of marketplace up-and-coming artists find themselves.

Some new music hit the web this month that I’ve been listening to — as I take a short break from my Alphabetical Listening Project. Definitely worth your time.

Brad Mehldau’s Highway Rider through Nonesuch. One of my favorite producers, Jon Brion, who did Largo, did a bang up job throughout.

Dave Holland’s newest, Pathways, for Octet sounds great. I’ll be picking that one up shortly. Check it out here.

Last, some reissued, remastered boxed sets from Black Saint / Soul Note are available now. I’m specifically excited about picking up the Charlie Haden box, but the others are on my To-Buy list as well. All are available here.

Anything I’ve missed? Pass on what’s found it’s way to your ears in the comments if you’d like.

  2. Hey Jim

    Wow, thanks for the info on these box sets – it’s the first I have heard of them. Great value, although as it has taken them so long to do this, I guess many people, myself included, will already have a bought number of the albums on CD over the years. Yes, the Haden set is a must, but I think I will have to start with Henry Threadgill – I only have 2 albums from the 7 CD set. Rava and Pieranunzi as well – goodbye shelf space!

    They are going to have fun when they get to David Murray – something like a 15 CD set??

  3. the new ahmad jamal album, “a quiet time,” is awesome. as funky, fresh and forward-thinking as any new jazz out there.

    the review doesn’t do the music justice, but you can check it here:
