Working my way through the Julius Hemphill box set. It's mostly great, apart from the heap of spoken word collaborations on disc 5. As always usual, the spoken word is far inferior to the music, and so distracting.

Of course, in songs, lyrics are often inferior to music (see Sir Paul McCartney, nah nah nah nah), but it's less of a distraction because they meld with the music rather than running as a parallel track. If that makes sense.

Found a mint, first pressing of Jaco Pastorius' self-titled debut from 1976 at our favorite neighborhood record shop. I'm not sure I had ever listened to it before. Sounded great though it's sort of "challenging" because not everything hangs together as well as you think it should. Hope to keep it in the regular rotation for several weeks.

Well, not quite whenever I want. 

(Isn't Rundfunk the best word?)

Oh I had a serious JP phase. I think I drove my roommates completely nuts though.
