Fun Thing to Buy of the Day: Let Tenacious D Entertain You with 'Jazz'

Yes, Tenacious D's first foray into jazz music is now available for your listening pleasure. Jack Black and Kyle Gass's first jazz album, entitled Jazz, only features one track, an 11-minute long snippet of free-form jazz exploration, but a video on the making of the album is also included, all for the low low price of $2.99. It's a steal for fans of comedy bands exploring different musical genres.

Tenacious D appeared on Craig Ferguson last night to promote their new jazz album, entitled Jazz, a limited edition vinyl-only release. They perform a truncated version of the album's only track, "Simply Jazz," which Ferguson points out runs 11 minutes and 36 seconds on the record. On the close-up of the album sleeve, you can see that "Simply Jazz" is listed under Side A and "Nothing on Side B" is listed under Side B.
