I just discovered two free MP3s from Meat Beat Manifesto. They’re tracks not included in the recent At the Center CD. “Postcards” and “Maintain Discipline” MP3s are exclusive to Amazon.com.
I had intended to write about At the Center earlier. I’ve been playing it on TomorrowJazz Radio since it came out months ago. It’s a good example of jazztronica. Jack Dangers, the man behind the board and at the bass, is credited as one of the main innovators of electronic music in the 1990s, is accompanied by keyboardist Craig Taborn, Peter Gordon on flute, and Bad Plus/Happy Apple drummer Dave King. The recording is eclectic and infinitely listenable. The hypnotic feel of the free tracks should give you an idea but there are other styles and sounds to be heard on it.
