Chris Burnett Makes It Happen
Plastic Sax readers know that I regularly point out that most Kansas City jazz musicians fail to properly market themselves. Just last month I highlighted two outstanding promotional videos by local rappers in an effort to motivate the jazz community.
Chris Burnett is an exception. He aggressively promotes both his work and the Artists Recording Collective on a variety of social media platforms. And now he has a new video to show off.
I don't particularly care for the aesthetic values of the video, but that's not the point. What's important is that Burnett made it happen.
A technical note from the video's creator is instructive: "I made this music video with nothing but Digital Juice Videotraxx HD and SD. It took more time to render the clips (about 60 of them) than it did to cut it together."
