Looking for an album called 'Wings'

Do you remember the 'concept album' from the late 70s (?) called 'Wings'? Nothing to do with Paul McCartney, this was a 'crossover' production, mixing jazz and classical. The word 'wings' is so generic that Googling isn't helping me at all. If I just had the composer's name, I'd be able to hunt up a copy ... (I remember being wowed by the music back then, and would like to re-visit it.)

Jazz albums where the guitarist fills the usual role of the pianist

I'm looking for recommendations for jazz albums with a lineup similar to the one on Sonny Rollins's classic album The Bridge, which has tenor sax + guitar + bass + drums and that's it. (YouTube example.) I love how Jim Hall's guitar takes on the usual role of the piano since it's the only instrument in the ensemble that can play whole chords. [more inside]

Name that tune!

Today during NFL games, there was an IBM ad that featured big hits, quarterbacks getting sacked, etc. In the background a delightful jazz tune was playing, kind of an antithesis to the action on screen. What was the song?

Songs similar to "End of the World Party" by Medeski, Martin, and Wood?

I really like the jazz trio Medeski, Martin, and Wood, especially their song "End of the World Party" (http://www.seeqpod.com/search/?plid=6354e115f8) Do you know any songs or artists with a similar style? I'm getting a little tired of listening to the same songs over and over.

Is there a script or program that will automatically download the names of jazz album sidemen?

I have a few hundred jazz albums on MP3 in my iTunes library. I'd to add the names of the sidemen on the albums to the MP3's comment tags, but I'd rather not enter the info manually, for obvious reasons. Is there any form of script or program that exists that will do this for me -- perhaps pulling from Amazon, or some other source? (Prefix this with, "Hey, Lazyweb," if desired.) [more inside]

I remember the album cover, but what's the title and who's the artist?

Years ago I had one of those "greatest album covers" books, and there was one (a jazz LP, I believe) that featured a gorgeous black and white photo of a woman floating in a lake or river, wearing a white dress, with only her face above water (the photo was taken benearth the surface, so her face wasn't visible). There was no writing of any kind on the cover. Anyway, I've been trying to find out which album that is for years now (the book is long gone), to no avail. Does this ring any bells with anyone?
