UPDATE: Contest is now closed (as of 10 Feb 07). Thanks to all who entered!
Label : Year
As a thank you to our readers, we’ve instituted the first Destination: OUT contest. We hope to make this a regular feature.
It’s two contests, really. The first one involvesÂ some skill, and the second, dumb luck. Feel free to enter both!
CONTEST ONE – Blindfold,Â please.
This contest is basically a blindfold test.Â We’ve posted an mp3, above, stripped of identifying tags or details (honest souls — please let us know if any coding is getting through). Write us at the email address on theÂ sidebar with your guess of the name of the tune and/or the musician(s) responsible.Â You have until next Friday at 11:00 pm EST to get us your answers. We will throw all correct and partially correct answers in a hat and draw a winner.
CONTEST TWO – Roll ‘em.
This contest is simple: We’reÂ thinking of a number between 1 and 100. Leave your guess in the comments section of this entry. You have until next Friday at 11:00 pm EST to make your guess. Please be sure not to duplicate anyone else’s number. AndÂ please only enter once. The person who guesses the right digits – or comes closest -Â wins.
OUR FABULOUS PRIZES:
The winner of each contest will walk away with two superb CDs — you do still listen to CDs, yes? — among the finest jazz albums released last year: Dave Burrell’s Momentum and The Sonic Liberation Front’s Change Over Time.
Extra special thanks to the High Two label for providing these wonderful albums. Â
The winners of the contest will be announced next Monday morning. We’ll contact the two lucky folks over the weekend.

If you haven’t already, please check out our new sidebar feature,Â “Other Planes of There,” found near the top of the right-hand column. It highlights, via del.icio.us tag,Â recent music articles from around the interweb that have caught our fancy. This section will be updated constantly, so take a peek now and again.
