VibeRide: Don Blackman Tribute

VibeRide: Don Blackman Tribute

Playing tracks by

Tom Browne, Don Blackman, Weldon Irvine, Bernard Wright and Lenny White.

VibeRide's tribute to Don Blackman who passed away a few days ago on April the 11th 2013. So glad we got to see him perform live in London a few years back. A uniquely talented musician, writer and producer, Don Blackman's contribution to jazz-funk is significant and his wonderful music will continue to groove jazz-funk lovers old and new.

Live performance of 'Heart's Desire' from RezaJazzMix on YouTube. Voice sample from RBMA Radio's interview with Don Blackman.

He was one of the greatest. Blackmans solo record was very reminiscent of Mtume's juicy fruit. Freaky, funky, smooth, soulful. Man that record is slammin. Here's to you Don, I'll be jamming to your tunes for as long as I live. Much love.

I remember hearing 'Holding you, loving you' for the first time and I couldn't believe that the guy who made that wonderful song released only one album... I still think that his 1982 self-titled album is one of the best albums ever.
