So last month, I wrote one review a day for the Burning Ambulance blog (the online appendage of Burning Ambulance, a zine I edit). Thirty-two albums in 31 days. I deliberately selected jazz records that I felt probably wouldn't get publicity in higher-profile jazz-related magazines or websites—discs on tiny indies, self-released albums, etc., etc. Now that the project's over, here are links to all 31 reviews, for your convenience.
