Afterthoughts
in 2003 Rolling Stone magazine ranked this album at number 12 on their 500 greatest albums of all time list. So perhaps there is something wrong with me, when it was a form of torture to listen to this record.

Occasionally during the 46 minutes of this album, I found myself absentmindedly tapping my foot only to be interrupted by a piano break that seemed out of place, or a saxophone solo that wasn’t in time with anything else being played…then I remember this is Jaaaazzzzzz.

It’s still not for me. I’ll try again in 20 years,

Hear again
