The slang sense to which you refer has its roots in the mid-20th century ? it was first recorded in writing in the title of an album by the Charlie Parker Quartet: "Cool Blues". This is how the slang form of cool was first used, to refer to a certain restrained or relaxed style of jazz. It was later applied to those who preferred that kind of jazz, especially in the term cool cat. That usage arose in 1948, while Charlie Parker's album was released in 1947. It was also in 1948 that the word acquired its "hip" sense, so that anyone or thing that was cool was the subject of approval. The word has retained that basic sense through the present day.

I thought it went back to the 1920's. But ya, I knew it had something to do with jazz.

That's really "cool" Odium.

I'm amazed that you know that.. definately a bit of interesting but basically non-applicable knowledge that I want to carry on with me :wink:


--------------------
Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
