bill wells & aidan moffat: everything's getting older

I don’t consider myself a jazz fan—I have very little knowledge of the genre; and I only have two jazz albums in my music library: the Sweet and Lowdown Soundtrack and A Charlie Brown Christmas. So it is not surprising that it took me a while to really get Everything's Getting Older by Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat—a brilliant avant-garde jazz album full of soothing piano lullabies and minimalistic percussion. The best part about Everything's Getting Older is the fascinating lyrics and Aidan Moffat’s wisely sounding voice provides engaging spoken-word stories, philosophies and rants. This is not the typically type of music/album I usually recommend on this blog, but I highly encourage everyone to give this fantastic record a listen or two!
