Spin your favorite tunes in celebration as AMN is now two years old.
Since April 29th 2003, we have had 1520 posts. We started off averaging fewer than 2 posts a day and now we average between 3 and 4 a day. We get anywhere from 100-400 hits per day, and seem to have a core audience of a couple hundred individuals. We’ve been through three software packages to run the site, and two hosting companies.
Perhaps the biggest change is that when AMN started, we had to spend a lot of time to go out and look for news. These days, most of the news comes to us, from our readers. All of you deserve a warm thanks for making AMN what it is.
We will continue our efforts to incrementally improve AMN. The site will remain a free service, with no advertising, and no ulterior motives. Enjoy.

From Gino Robair:
As part of the annual Matthew Sperry Memorial Festival, we will be celebrating the 60th birthday of Anthony Braxton by assembling a 60-piece creative orchestra to play pieces from throughout his vast catalog of works. The event will take place on Saturday evening, June 4, 2005 at 21 Grand, Oakland, CA. We’re still working out the details of the instrumentation and pieces, but it’ll combine ensemble works, solo pieces, sections of GTM, and a variety of other structures.
