Playing tracks by
BILLY HAWKS, The Peddlers, Eddie Jefferson, Lonnie Smith, Syl Johnson and more.
Is Quantic & Alice Russell "Look around the corner" Best track of the year so far? Up next comes the inspiration for "can i kick it?" by ATCQ, Lonnie Smith's version of "Spinning wheel" lifted from the Blue note LP "Drives" followed by another Blue note track "Repeat after me" by The Three sounds....raw jazz-funk is on the agenda in the guise of "O baby (i believe i'm losing you)" sang by Billy Hawks...then the much sampled Syl Johnson classic "Different strokes" Then some lovely 7" soundtrack business, taken from the "Hells Belles" soundtrack , "Hot wind" by Les Baxter...British Trio The Peddlers up next with there heavy "Comin' home baby" tune , check the scatting breakdown in the middle!! The social commentary of Eddie Jefferson next, with wonderful "Zap! Carnivorous!" then a trio of Golden Era hip hop closes the mix..."Jazz thing" by Gangstarr, their finest moment? ATCQ's jazz bassline driven "Buggin out" finishing with Pete Rock & CL smooth's "Mecca & the soul brother" ENJOY!!!
