Yep, I was in the record shop the other day pouring over racks and racks of obscure albums, when I spotted Miles Davis blowing seductively into his trumpet. So I handed over my money and allowed myself to feel slightly superior to the girl asking for the latest Robbie Williams album next to me. Well... I've got to say it's growing on me. That's not to say I wasn't into it at first, but I think that it's the sort of thing that needs a few listens to really settle in. Miles and John Coltrane's solos are terrific without being flashy or particularly complicated, and the rest of the group are a great backbone. It's hard to believe that those were the first takes of tunes they'd never seen before until the session. I don't really know what the point of this thread was, but I thought I'd share my first serious flirtation with jazz with you all. I don't pretend I understand it fully yet, but I'm enjoying getting to know it.
