Respect to my old friend Jeremiah Q. Ganstein III. He knows more about music than I do, and he probably knows more about music than you do. He is known around the world by many names (J-pants, Jameson, Hip Hop, Pantalonious, El Tercero, Dirty, Smooth J) but always for the same feats: the ridiculous amount of music under his control and one irresistibly charming flannel pajama set. Also he can get a little clepto when on the bottle, but that happens to the best of us.
I put this together with Mr. Ganstein in mind. It's hard to please a man with such complete tastes, but I've done my best here with a sweet selection of soul and funk that I expect he will like. Nothing but the best for the man who introduced me, in the late nineties, to what now seems a shocking number of key artists: Mos Def, Herbie Hancock, Antibalas, Cornelius, Squarepusher, Tortoise, Femi Kuti, DJ Spinna, and Prefuse 73 just off the top of my head. A nice variety, don't you think? Yeah, Ganstein is the shit.
