Re: What' spawnin'?
Nope, haven't got around to the Birth of the Cool yet. I'll keep an eye out for it (it's one of his biggest albums), along with Sketches of Spain. I'm actually going to the record store Tuesday, and will trade in a box set I have that I bought for about a hundred but which now sells for $299. Of course it's used and I'll get a fraction of that if they even take it, but hopefully I'll make a nice HAUL of it. Might take some in cash to buy those two Miles albums if the record store doesn't have them. There's also a Complete Birth of the Cool: is it worth getting?
Always overlooked the cool period because he invented that style and then dropped it in favor of bop after like a year; he also had pretty serious heroin problems about that time.
There's a commercial for a local car dealership starring some auto salesman that I think is supposed to be Rodney Dangerfield and him "double-tracked" (don't know the film term) as Austin Powers. Now that's a WTF.
