It had to happen. The bastards came of jazz-age in the eighties and ninetiesan era when young lions roamed the earth (and the mall record bins) and, sooner or later, attention must be paid. What to say about this last gasp of mainstream, corporate-approved jazz before the collapse of the majors? Oh, so very, very much. So much in fact that some of the ranting had to be tagged on to the ending just to avoid sinking the ship. Pop matters? Old 97s and early Kraftwerk . . .
