Nice album, nice video. Too bad he drank himself into a stupor.

Moving on to a few key LPs of the nu jazz scene. I know the genre gets a terrible rap, being dismissed as bland, upscale urban cafe wallpaper, but it doesn't pretend to be anymore more, and I enjoy it for what it is.

Presently spinning the Verve Remixed complete series box set. The opener is a very sultry minimal electronic rework of Billie Holiday's "Yesterdays".

Full playlist on YT here.

The track which initiated me into the scene was from vol 2 - Willie Bobo's Fried Neckbones and Some Homefries.

That wasn't terrible. I mean, I wouldn't go so far as to say I enjoyed it, or would listen to more of it, but at least I didn't vomit blood....

My new boss dug the framed print I added to my desk today showcasing my favorite 20th century composers, and he asked if I'd seen this video. Definitely cooler than my last boss.

Like a lot of Waits fans, I don't particularly dig Alice. In fact, it would be right up there along with Blood Money and The Black Rider as my least favourite of his. But this came up in a playlist today and damn if it ain't good. Maybe I need to revisit that album...

I've grown weary of having to "lift" for some others
while having to repeat myself over at another thread,
so I've decided I'll let someone else do the repeating
while I get on with the more important aspects of life.

Sorry, I forgot. I didn't take the picture above.

I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
And the touch of a world that is older
I turn the switch and check the number
I leave it on when in bed I slumber
I hear the rhythms of the music
I buy the product and never use it
I hear the talking of the dj
Can't understand just what does he say?

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican radio

I dial it in and tune the station
They talk about the U.S. inflation
I understand just a little
No comprende--it's a riddle

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican radio

I wish I was in Tijuana
Eating barbecued iguana
I'd take requests on the telephone
I'm on a wavelength far from home
I feel a hot wind on my shoulder
I dial it in from south of the border
I hear the talking of the dj
Can't understand just what does he say?

I'm on a Mexican radio
I'm on a Mexican radio

Radio, radio...
