We Resolve To Supply You With Free Concert Downloads

A Blog Supreme is seizing the first full week of the new year to take some time off. We'll be back the week starting Monday, Jan. 12, 2010.

The previous year was very good to us at NPR Music: We made a whole bunch of stunning concert Webcasts and recordings in 2009. And for many of them, the artists have graciously agreed to make the audio archives available as free downloads. The least we could do is put 'em all in one place for your convenience.

Remember, streaming audio, and now video archiving, is available for many of these shows too — including a number of Village Vanguard, Newport Jazz Festival, and now, Toast Of The Nation recordings that aren't cleared for download.

Happy listening.
