One night in some city in some state I was in some bar and heard
this fantastic dance music. DMAO. In a whole new class. Not
the epidemic mindless, boring, repetitive, endless beat that was
happening in every other bar. I cornered the DJ: "Acid-Jazz, friend."
Where the hell have I been?

So I'm looking to pad my CD collection with the best of this stuff.
A handful of CD's, with very soulful, danceable, funky, jazzy stuff.
(Not really after the hip-hop angle.) Key word is danceable. And CD's
only. Suggestions, vets? Yeah, I'm sure there are scads of compilation
discs. But which are the *best*? Every tune danceable, comme ca.

And that's the other thing. Stationed in Paris now. Just landed. Anyone
know where I'm likely to hear this music in this rather happening town?
Also, where I can buy it here for a reasonable price? Possibilities for
buying it mail order?

Thanks, and sweet dark nights,
