We're temporarily shutting down our blogging side of life for the rest of 2007. We'll be back at it come the New Year, when all of the Best Music of 2007 lists will have been out and we can pick through them for self-aggrandizing purposes.
And what a New Year it will be: It's no big whoop or anything -- but 2008 is CRYPTO'S TENTH ANNIVERSARY!! We have a lot of cool stuff planned, including a special 2-CD Crypto Retrospective and new releases from reedman Bennie Maupin, bassist Todd Sickafoose, percussionist Alex Cline, clarinetist Ben Goldberg and the Jeff Gauthier Goatette. We even have a new Nels Cline release scheduled and it will be quite a special one: Nels' soundtrack for an upcoming film about L.A. artist Ed Ruscha. We'll have some special stuff going on blogwise too, so stay tuned.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM ALL OF US AT CRYPTO CENTRAL!
