It's a brave new audio world: Coinciding with last week's release of Medeski, Martin & Wood's latest work, The Dropper
, to retailers' shelves as a polycarbonate-and-aluminum CD, Liquid Audio
announced that the title was simultaneously being made available as a full-album digital download. Liquid reports that this is the first time a Blue Note
title has been released in a digital format at the same time as its physical release.
