"Artists need to make money to eat and to continue to make art. Artists used to rely on middlemen to collect their money on their behalf, thereby rendering themselves innocent of cash-handling in the public eye. Artists will now be coming straight to you (yes YOU, you who want their music, their films, their books) for their paychecks. Please welcome them. Please help them. Please do not make them feel badly about asking you directly for money. -Amanda Palmer

Also, when did Hollywood start smelling like a ginourmous weed factory, I miss the old smell of Bum Piss?

Going through a heavy jazz phase over the last half-year. I just listen to the same Bill Evans, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, and Thelonious Monk albums over and over.

Troubling: the GF hates jazz. She doesn't understand why they play so many ugly notes. I on the other hand have crossed the magic threshold where the jazz stuff I used to dislike sounds great to me now. Long bass solo? Yes please.

I have 2 of those albums, Kind of Blue and A Love Supreme. I really dig both of them a lot. I also have Miles Bitches Brew and it does nothing for me. I have a Mingus album, His Final Works, but i haven't been able to get into it either. I figure it's probably not his best. It's either scraps they pieced together from inferior rejects after he died or it's actually his final works as a frail doddering old man. Yikes, he was 56 when he died. That's how old I am now. Anyway, there is this one Mingus tune* came to me by way of a Mixtape from long lost board member Bozack. It cooks! Also, you should add Brubeck Time's Out to your list. It's essential listening.

I don't think I've "crossed that magic threshold" yet, but I feel I'm getting closer. When I hear a movie with a jazz score I generally enjoy it. So I'm that close, just not to the point, except for those notable exceptions I've mentioned able to listen to Jazz on it's own.

*This is a different recording than the one on Bozak's mix, but still pretty fuck*ng great.

If you like Kind of Blue you might like Bill Evans, he is the piano player on Kind of Blue.

Paul, have you listened to In a Silent Way? It was released the year before Bitches Brew and I think marked the beginning of his electric fusion period. I like Bitches Brew (though I almost never listen to it) but I love In a Silent Way. It's my favorite Miles Davis album and one of my favorite albums of any genre. I'm curious to know what others think about it.

I like Mingus a lot. My favorite album is probably The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady (another favorite album overall) but also love Pithecanthropus Erectus (I believe Aug was the first person to recommend that one to me) and pretty any much anything Mingus recorded. I really like Mingus.

I haven't listened to Monk in a while, I think I'll listen to a couple of his albums this weekend.

Nice song, nice album. All three of their albums are, actually.

No, I haven't actually. Well maybe I have. I've heard lots of Jazz that wasn't identified.
