I Had a Snow Day Off So I Bought a Shitload of Used Jazz CDs

The World Wide Intraweb told me that Academy Records on West 18th Street had a much better selection of classical than jazz. Apparently, you have to go further downtown to dig that cool jazz. Perhaps this is true and if I had tromped in the snow to East 12th, I would have been even nuttier. But I gotta tell you - I found more than enough neat stuff at the 18th Street location to waste a whole winter afternoon. And they have good classical, too, it just wasn't what I was jonesing for yesterday.

And I ended up putting a lot of Eric Dolphy, Mel Torme and Dave Brubeck back because it was just getting out of control.

Do you use for jazz? If you don't, you should.

I have a Chick Corea station.

No, I don't. I shall have to check it out. I do have the most wonderful Sun Ra playlist on Itunes ever.
