I was listening to Mingus's Oh Yeah today, and it reminded me that the guy is responsible for some of the most compelling song titles in music history. Cases in point: "Hog-Callin' Blues," "Oh Lord Don't Let Them Drop That Atomic Bomb on Me," and "The Shoes of the Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive-Ass Slippers."

Yesterday, I found what must be the best jazz record store in the country: Jazz Record Mart in downtown Chicago. The selection is varied and massive. There was a great deal of stuff there that I never knew existed.

You did - that was a great recommendation, Shouter. The word "found" was not accurate on my part. I could have spent hours there.

I haven't been there in quite a while, and mostly because of this. It's too much, and I have neither the money nor the willpower necessary for a fulfilling visit.

This describes me at Amoeba, in San Fran & Hollywood. Was at the Hollywood store for about five hours and I could have easily stayed for another five.

Will do! Just listening to Deluge now... love that tune.

I'd also love to hear your thoughts on Steely Dan's Aja if you have got around to it!

Thoroughly enjoyed In a Silent Way. Not what I was expecting, in that both halves are quite energetic at times. Really loved the interplay between the horns and the light drumming, the guitar, the bass. I think I'm really gonna enjoy discovering more jazz.
