Sitting here listening to Miles Davis and "Kind of Blue" and now you do this .....

Don't know how you guys feel about contemporary jazz but I'm seeing The Cinematic Orchestra today at the Royal Albert Hall.

I've seen them once before but never at such a major venue. I think its going to be amazing!

As Walter Pater said in his infamous and weighty tome, Studies in the History of the Renaissance (1873), "All art constantly aspires to the condition of music," and as I say, "All music should aspire to the conditions of Jazz." Here's the Evidence, from Monk's Town Hall concert...

Crazy theme, that one. Ever try singing it? (We don't hear it until the end on the video.)

Trivia: The title "Evidence" was chosen because the tune is based on the changes of "Just You, Just Me", which could be shortened to "Just Us", which sounds like "Justice" and, in order for justice to be done, one must have....
