Episode 456: Sonny Stitt’s ‘Mr. Bojangles’


How do we know if a piece of music is good? How do we know if it is bad? How do we know why we feel the way we do about the songs that soundtrack our lives? Those are the questions that we’ve asked over and over for almost 500 episodes on Discologist. As we enter our 10th season, it’s about time we found some answers.

On the season premiere, Kevin and Eduardo are digging into legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Stitt’s overlooked masterpiece, Mr. Bojangles.  An album that is as transcendent as it is trashy, Mr. Bojangles asks listeners to consider what they REALLY want out of music and then gives it to them in an exquisite slow burn of schmaltz.

It’s really better than it sounds. Trust us. We’re here to help.
