Basking In the Jazzy Sounds

With Yo La Tengo in Japan (and forsaking their Hoboken Hannukah shows the one year I was planning to attend), the Daily Yomiuri previews the Japanese tour with an interview with Ira Kaplan:

"I think even though William Parker and all these people (from ODM) are unquestionably jazz musicians, I'm not so sure that 'Don't Have to Be So Sad,' even though they play on it, is particularly a jazz song. 'Let's Be Still' to me is what I would term the 'jazziest' of the songs (on the album), but even that is more of a 'groove' than jazz," Kaplan stresses from his home in Hoboken, N.J.
