Ken Burns’ war against modern jazz

Something really interesting about Ken Burns and his bias against fusion.

I’m somewhat disappointed by Sigur RósVon (their 1997 debut album only released in Iceland), which I got a few days ago. It’s pretty good, much more laid-back than Ágætis byrjun, more subtle and less over-the-top. But somehow I feel like it’s missing the magic that makes Ágætis byrjun so damn good. Hmm… a few more listens are needed, I guess.

The CMJ New Music Report gave the new Tortoise a glowing review. This one looks to be a definite must-get.
