Compie dieci anni di attività in questi giorni il benamato blog Inconstant Sol, che pensa bene di ringraziare e salutare i propri lettori ripubblicando un bel concerto di Hugh Hopper ed Elton Dean con Keith Tippett e Joe Gallivan - disponibile in video presso Vimeo - registrato quarant'anni fa poco dopo le sessioni di Mercy Dash, nel giugno 1977. Auguri!

"Bundles of people have contributed over the years, some gone, others holding on and yet others joining and putting their distinctive mark on the contents and direction of the blog. Currently we have about half a dozen active posters and some very generous followers, judging from inputs to our contributions section, but we're always willing to recruit more. Potential authors can get in touch with us c/o our Blogger email addresses. We've had contributors from three continents, with a preponderance of Europeans overall. The emphasis has been on the free/improv/experimental side of jazz, but with excursions into contemporary and classical music, from Europe and beyond. There are no rules, however; the blog is whatever the posters make of it, and we'd like to keep it that way. We focus on posting out of print material with the objective of drawing attention to music which otherwise might have remained out of sight and out of mind."
