Podcasts! Beldencasts!

Please draw a mutsache on me-

Bob Belden, the genius jazz composer, saxophonist and all around funny man, has come up with a show which you shouldn't miss. Bob- who is also one of the preeminent jazz scholars- has started a podcast which we are turning into a weekly radio show. Bob- in addition to his own work- has overseen many of the reissues of a lot of historic catalogues- amongts them the Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Joe Zawinul catalogues (all of which he has written incredibly incisve liner notes also) and his essays about these artists are thorough and inventive both from a fan's standpoint and a musician's/

Bob has brought his unique perspective and unbelievable access to cyberland. The first two Belden shows (brought to you by Bob's "Rope-a-Dope Podcasting Network") feature great insight and rare music of Herbie Hancock and Miles Davis.
