This one isn't a guitar riff either, but I did find a guitar "arrangement" of this classic tune, so that's what I used:

The album was, sort of, but the genre wasn't. Who cares? :wink:

lol, Gabba, 'cool' clues. I knew the genre and time frame but didn't know the song.
Sorry, I've got nothing ready to go :(

Glad someone knows it, boxboy! :)

Some say this artist gave birth to "cool."

The 50-year old album is often considered one of the best ever, in or out of the genre.

The song opened the album.

Whatever.

I think I have a riff close to postable, so I'll jump in.
So What Miles Davis?

Cool.

If you have spare 8 minutes or so, here's a great live performance of So What from 59:

No Cannonball and no Bill Evans (the studio pianist on the recording) but dang! that's smokin'! Miles Davis and John Coltrane together! Gotta love the attitude of the guys standing around looking cool during the solos. 8)

What I thought sounded near 'postable' doesn't, so I'm looking for a substitute.

This inconsequential, narrow, mean spirited guy and his band have been together for more than 30 years. :wink:

The band is from central Florida.
This song was the first single from their self titled debut album. Released in '76, it went nowhere, re-released in '77, it went to #40. Many, many bigger hits have followed.

Well, that last clue left a bit of work, but I think it's Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers and Breakdown
I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?
