Once again, no Jazz Prospecting this week. I've been streaming 2007 records, thinking the year-end wrap-up I may or may not write -- odds are lengthening against it. Recycled Goods is done, finished, kaput. Last one should be posted shortly, complete with a year-end list that is already obsolete. I'm still not tired of the streaming, so I've made a deal with myself: keep doing it through Jan. 31, then freeze the year-end list and move on to the new jazz, including a pile that doesn't fit on my usual incoming shelves and is increasingly resembling the leaning tower of Pisa (or Abu Dhabi, as the case may be).
Jazz CG #15 has been slotted for 2/13 or 2/20 in the Village Voice. I'll know more when I know more, probably when it happens. I'll have a report (or two) on the downloads later this week. I also have a lot of book stuff to get to, and that will start coming out, possibly in large spurts.
