Our Intern Listens To 'Bitches Brew' For The First Time

NPR Music intern extraordinaire Dominic Martinez is soon to graduate college and leave us with a lot more work. But before his last day tomorrow (sob), he also left us with some of his own writing.

Our friends at the All Songs Considered blog have "a recurring series in which we ask our unimaginably young interns to review classic albums they've never heard before." Because we have awesome interns, and because everyone has lacunae in their listening histories, the series lends fresh perspective to the classics. Young Dominic is a jazz bassist — a quite capable one, I say — so he decided to put his ear to Miles Davis' Bitches Brew. As he tells it, he may have just learned to like jazz fusion. Sort of.

More from Dominic soon. Hooray Dominic! [NPR Music: "You've Never Heard Miles Davis' 'Bitches Brew'!?"]

P.S. Oh, like you had heard every single great canonical jazz record when you were a senior in college. Come now.
