Jazz has it's own spoken language. Jazz slang is still an American lexicon that is still used today.
This track is named "Bad Clams" because this was all mistakes of or natural reasoning in a jazzy kind of way. funky but still good for you.
Also "bad" was/is a term in jazz that means "good." "Clams" was/is a term for mistakes when playing or making music...hence bad clams. A good mistake.
