Name that Music

Jazz has the best, coolest titles.

Like Miles Davis' So What, Thelonius Monk's Straight, No Chaser. Compare these with the titles of classical works --- piano trio No. 100, cello concerto No. 5, symphony No. 8. Hehe, this is not a knock on classical music as music, but a knock on their BORING TITLES!

I've been listening to drummer Matt Wilson's album "An Attitude For Gratitude" and am about to buy it. Look at the pieces on the album --- You Bet, Bubbles, Stolen Time, and, my favorite, There's No You.
