Over the past couple years it seems to me there’s been a considerable uptick in the number of releases on Bandcamp that are tributes and/or interpretations or covers of the work of Ayler. At first, I was drawn to it but recently I’m more likely to choose something else unless I’m already familiar with the musicians.

It’s kind of like like 25 years ago tribute albums were almost always pretty cool. Then it became a common way for mediocre bands to dick ride a bigger name. Maybe it’s always been that way.

Jazz musicians are always going to play standards and what’s a standard changes over time

I guess when I’m picking out new stuff to listen to I want like only a couple of standards per release.

Any thoughts?
