Um, ok…

Sort of like “belling the cat”. I’m not gonna tell him no.

Honestly, if I were in his shoes, I would have done and said exactly the same thing. Which for me makes it even funnier.

(And bitches brew isn’t even all that good. There, I said it)

Totally agree. It’s too slow moving and alternates between too shrill and flat-sounding. I much prefer the other stuff.

Rolling Stone disagrees, however.


#8

I prefer Coltrane anyway.

Thirteen years old and I ask a record store clerk if they had any ‘amazing jazz’. He recommended this.

Mind. Permanently. Blown.

Wow. A useful recommendation from a clerk when it really counted. Hard to beat that.


#11

I think the clerk might have been Jack Black…

Gets me wondering if that Teo Macero documentary is still coming together.

Yes, IMDB has it updated as in post-production for release in April, 2016. I saw the teaser five years ago!

I love electric-era Miles. As end-results go, it is a mixed bag, but an incredibly creative period. A fly on the wall would have no doubt witnessed amusing discussions with the record company about what to do with the stuff.

I even like Tutu, despite (or possibly because of) its really cheesy 80s-isms. I pretty much have the whole thing memorized. I wore out a cassette, rebought it on CD, lost the CD and bought it in MP3.
