Random Ten

1. "All That Heaven Will Allow," The Mavericks
2. "Uncovered," Soundgarden
3. "As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls," Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays
4. "Red Sunset," Kelly Willis
5. "Gone, Gone, Gone," Miles Davis
6. "Everything Breaks," The Woodentops
7. "Mr. Blues," Moby Grape
8. "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing," Stevie Wonder
9. "Crepuscule with Nellie," T.S. Monk
10. "Stop Leading Me On," B.B. King

I had gotten out of the habit -- a run of busy Fridays. As it happens a reader emailed me on a different subject and mentioned liking the R10's so we'll make sure to keep them going.

I'm sufficiently intrigued by the title of the Metheny/Mays piece to have Googled it, to no effect. No backstory turns up. Apparently it's just the sort of random play on words favored by modern jazz musicians.
