Upon Terry Teachout's recommendation, I bought Relaxin' with the Miles Davis Quintet off Amazon's MP3 service. And what valuable lesson have we learned from this? That we should follow more of Terry Teachout's recommendations.

Meanwhile, I am once again taking eMusic nominations. If you've made the same nomination more than twice, though keep in mind that either I bought it, I didn't like it, or (most likely) it isn't carried on eMusic. You'd be surprised at how much isn't, even indie music . . . though of course, enough is that I keep going back to the well.
