The Paintings of Miles Davis http://buff.ly/1soLh0H
Ask enough people to name their favorite artist of any kind, and sooner rather than later, someone will name Miles Davis. The trumpeter and jazz auteur behind — or, strictly speaking, up in front of — such unchallenged masterpieces as Birth of the Cool, Kind of Blue, Sketches of Spain, ...

Music That Helps You Write: A Free Spotify Playlist of Your Selections - starring Alice Coltrane

http://buff.ly/1lJSphB

#jazz #spotify
What music puts you in the mood to write? At the moment, I have on Alice Coltrane’s “Battle at Armageddon” from her 1971 Universal Consciousness, a work of psychedelic free jazz that makes my fingers skitter over the keyboard and sends thoughts racing through my mind.

Apparently, jazz needs saving. We must have missed that memo...

I wonder what "saving jazz" means in that journalistic coded language the author has opted for.

The Strange World of Library Music

"The dusty field of library music—background tracks owned by labels and lent out to TV, radio, and film projects—has proven to be an endless sample source for hip-hop producers as well as inspiration for avant-garde experimentalists."

Sampleface is a blog and label showcasing the best music, news and culture stories, underground and mainstream.
Introduction

Sampleface is a blog showcasing the best sample-based music around, underground and mainstream, old and new, as well as classic albums of all genres, news, reviews and everything in between. We also run a label hoping to extend our sample-based ethos. Don't be fooled, sampling is not lazy, when used correctly. Embrace the sampleface!

We started out in September 2012 and in the past year and a half, the site has gone from strength to strength. There are plenty of music blogs out there, sure, but we wanted to look at it from a different angle. Sampling is a major part of hip hop history before copyright law turned it into a money making exercise. We wanted to share our love of sampling with others and use it as a foundation for music related news and reviews. We've been fortunate enough to have some great people jump on the project to help write and we're very grateful for their input.
