Gordon rises from the ashes

I'm uploading a track from the recently lacerated Dexter Gordon folder. I was tempted to upload the entire album and create a playlist for your listening pleasure. But the bitrate was very high (320kbps) and most of the other tracks have a good deal of dissonance to dissuade any further listening.

I'm using the services of a newly launched site called MediaMaster. Though their concept behind the site isn't a novelty, I like the clean interface and also the fact that some Indians were involved in the development team. Though I'm highly skeptical of their long-term sustenance, I wish them all the best in their endeavor.

I'm placing the widget (temporarily, I guess) at the bottom of the sidebar. Click on Library and choose the Dexter Gordon playlist.

I have already discovered a few problems in using the widget. The entire track is buffered into memory before playing begins. This can be a serious problem when the track is long and/or has a high bitrate. So you can have lunch while the widget buffers Gordon! A more serious affliction is that once you choose to play a track in a list, you can't skip to some other track randomly. Progress is strictly sequential. Very strange.

I may add more tracks later if it's worth the effort. So keep looking!
