Saxophonist Warren Hill has unveiled a new website, popjazz.com, that he says can benefit both musicians and fans. The site’s main feature is to allow musicians to have a presence on the site to let their fans know about their music, touring and news.
Those already on the site include Chieli Minucci, Ray Parker Jr., Don Grusin, Andre Berry, Will Donato and Allen Hinds. All the content is free to access, however there is a subscription option for fans who want to access an online jukebox and to get other perks. Hill says the site is already getting a few thousands hits a day.
Those who go to the site now can help pick the next single that Hill will offer to radio: the original Gimme Some or his cover of the Doors' Light My Fire. Those who vote on the songs, which will be on Warren's next CD, will be then given the option to download both for free.Posted by Brian Soergel at May 24, 2007 12:31 AM
