Free online concerts are either getting more frequent or I'm just spending too much time downloading them.



Either way, I'm now backlogged with shows I've been meaning to review, but putting aside halfway through as I discover and listen to new ones. So I'm taking the easy way out and offering quick summaries of some more notable postings from early 2005.



There's considerable variety of jazz genres including folksy instrumentals, straight-ahead, classic fusion, contemporary smooth and heavily accented worldbeat. Not to mention inevitable jam bands seemingly more numerous than anything online, although only those well into the above-average range get a notice here. For the most part the shows are among the most recently posted, even if actual performance dates don't reflect this.
