John Mayer confirms "Room for Squares" title a play on Mobley album!

Charlotte Observer: The album's title is a play on jazz saxophonist Hank Mobley's 1963 album, "No Room for Squares." Why did you create your own version of Mobley's title?

John Mayer: I'm a jazz fan and I was flipping through a Blue Note Records coffee-table book and saw Mobley's album. There was something about the words. I'm kind of a word guy, and it just looked great.
