Hotel Bristol - another hit, from Joel Palsson

Icelandic saxophonist Joel Palsson has posted a new tune on MySpace, titled Hotel Bristol. This is, to my knowledge, only the second time Hotel Bristol has been used in music - the last time was raper LL Cool J's song about a mythical Hotel Bristol in New York's Queens, which is described in the chapter "LL Cool J and the Woman who Shot Andy Warhol, in High Times at the Hotel Bristol.  The BBC were going to play the rapper's track when they last interviewed me, until they heard the lyrics, which are not quite fit for family listening.
