Read "Is it random or is it Memorex? Landmark ruling may make all online music sharing 'legal'" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

The odds of a randomly generated audio file matching a standard-quality MP3 of “So What" are roughly one in 326 trillion. By coincidence, a $2,000 Dell PC can now generate that many numbers in two hours and 43 minutes. Those numbers, argued in extreme technical detail, are the basis of a March ...


"Stealing" Music Legally at

Read ""Stealing" Music Legally at" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

Some might argue that, like teen drinking or sex education, the only responsible option for this Russian site offering albums for pennies on the dollar is declaring it unacceptable.

Best Online Bets of 2004

Read "Best Online Bets of 2004" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

This is the year I became a believer. I've been downloading music for years, mostly a few novelty or sample tracks here and there. But 2004 is the first year where my purchases of online music clearly exceeded traditional CDs. And the amount of free and legal music may have surpassed both. ...


Read "" reviewed by Mark Sabbatini

Sometimes it's a great thing getting a reminder of one's ignorance. Stumbling upon these user-created collections of free music downloads, usually compiled from different sites and grouped into virtual “albums," exposes an entirely new genre of site foreign to me despite years of scouring the Net for files. Maybe it's just associating the “mix" ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
