Bassist, composer, and great musician Ben Allison has a new CD out. I haven’t heard it yet, but it is on my “to get” list. I have several of his older recordings and they are uniformly great.
He is taking one of the more interesting angles in web 2.x promotion, by inviting his audience to cover, remix, or make a video with his music. Watch his intro below, or hit the youtube page for more info.
