Thirsty Ear is a really interesting label, not only backing more "traditional" styles of jazz, but also pushing the boundries of what people consider to be jazz. The most notable addition to this area is The Blue Series Continuum, curated by jazz piano master, Matthew Shipp. In the past, albums in The Blue Series have paired up jazz maestros with experimental hip-hop artists and groups, for sampling and live sessions. I look forward to see how they continue to challenge preconcieved notions of where jazz ends, and anything else begins.
