First impressions: A lot more organ and guitar than I've ever heard in a jazz album. Seemingly the beginnings of jazz "fusion". Not my favorite Miles Davis. His trumpet sounds harsher and can be downright annoying at times. Never felt this way in Kind of Blue.
The greatest Sufjan album ever. I was a jr. in high school when this album came out and it was like nothing i'd ever heard.
I'd heard pennies from heaven while watching Elf and will admit it was catchy as hell. Not a huge jump blues, swing fan, but it's actually pretty fun. Every song begins with the identical piano riff...songs all sound pretty similar but it's also such a distinct style that it's to be expected.
King's lyrics are a product of their time, but offensive nonetheless. Not crazy about the album.
I am not listening to a Coldplay album.
