Recently reissued on 180gram vinyl by Be With Records, Ahmad Jamal's 1970 piano trio opus 'The Awakening' is a sought after digger's classic and among the most heavily sampled jazz records of all time. Familiar samples from the LP form the backbone of countless 90s Hip Hop anthems, most famous among them Nas's Pete Rock produced 1994 single 'The World Is Yours'. Others to have borrowed passages from the LP include the likes of Common, O.C, Jeru the Damaja, DJ Krush and many more. This mixtape produced in collaboration with Wax Poetics and Be With Records, mixed by Chris Read (MusicOfSubstance) explores the connection between the album and the many Hip Hop classics it inspired.

What an interesting concept. It's always cool hearing the actual samples on old records, but the the way this mix is put together its almost like your there with the producer spinning the album. I can just imagine Pete Rock sitting in his basement carefully listening and finding that one section to sample to his MPC. It's just amazing what these old artist could find within the songs of others.
