That's What I'm Talking About
I'm hardly what you'd call a jazz traditionalist. The forthcoming release by Robert Glasper will probably be my favorite album of 2012. Even so, I find this 82-year-old recording by Kansas City's Bennie Moten no less invigorating than anything being created today. The raucous "That's What I'm Talking About" is impossibly strange.
