Burning Ambulance, the arts and culture zine and website founded in 2010 by journalist Philip Freeman and artist I.A. Freeman, has grown over the last decade from a small print zine to a website and, since 2017, a podcast offering in-depth interviews with musicians from the worlds of jazz, metal, and modern classical. Now BA is celebrating 10 years of existence by starting a label, Burning Ambulance Music.
Eyes Shut, Ears Open: A Burning Ambulance Compilation includes 13 exclusive tracks. Most of the $10 purchase price will raise funds for future releases, but 25% of the money raised will be donated to the Jazz Foundation of America’s Musicians’ Emergency Fund, which provides housing assistance, medical care, and financial assistance to musicians.
The first full-length Burning Ambulance Music releases will arrive in 2021 and will be available digitally and on CD.

So happy to see a new album from this band. I've long been a fan of Mazurek and Parker's work in Tortoise, on top of the CUQ... Anyhow, if you're curious about contemporary jazz, this is a terrific place to start.
