New Playlist on the Sounds Section of our Website

Check out Savoy, the new playlist on the Sounds section of our website. These tracks feature words from Mary Lou Williams, W. Eugene Smith, Weegee, and Hall Overton; some nice bass and cello solos; and three tune fragments that Smith recorded on the ends of their respective tape reels (hence the abrupt endings).  -Dan Partridge

    Dear mr. Partridge,
    The Jazz Loft Project should be studied by everybody who is interested in jazz, photography, history, sociology, psychology, literary theory etc. It’s the affirmation of the concept of Roland Barthes’ intertextuality. From now on it should be an important model for everybody who writes about history for instance.The way you make abstracts from the tapes is exemplary. The fifties and sixties in a time capsule! In the book I read about a recording of Krapp’s Last Tape from Samuel Beckett. I would love to hear that and read it in a course of Literature and Philosophy. Perhaps in the future? A tape of a tape of a tape!
    Thank you very much,
    Edo Essed
    You must have the most interesting job in the world!!
