A personal tribute to the late Mr. Gil Scott-Heron. 1949 - 2011
He mixed politics, passion, humour and poetry with sparse and original arrangements to unique and pioneering effect.
"If there was any individual initiative that I was responsible for it might have been that there was music in certain poems of mine, with complete progression and repeating 'hooks', which made them more like songs than just recitations with percussion," Gil Scott-Heron 1990.
