All-Music Guide. Extensive and very useful database of the most recent issues of recordings (almost exclusively from the realm of Anglo-North-American jazz and popular musics, with a sprinkling of "world" music in the US-centric sense). Artists as well as track and album titles are directly searchable. The All-Music Guide supplies you with dates and other essential discographical detail not provided by 'serious' institutions like ASCAP or BMI, and sometimes offers links, potted biographies and an interactive review questionnaire. The database does not, however, include information about either composers, authors or publishers.
