I’m thinking of returning some of the CDs I bought from Impulse the other day. I wasn’t too fond of Tortoise’s TNT or William Orbit’s Pieces In A Modern Style. I’m aware that not liking TNT is a bit of a sin in some circles, but I found it a little too cold and clinical, and the instrumentation flat. I’ll listen to it again before making a final decision, but more out of respect for the City Slang maestros than anything else. As for the William Orbit, call me a curmudgeon, but I liked the original versions of the pieces better than his versions. I’ll also probably return Best Of Ella & Louie, because I realized that the songs I like best are the ones I already have.
