This title track to Lou Donaldson’s 1969 album was later used as a sample for the De La Soul song “3 Days Later.”
A “medley” of unreleased songs from Miles Davis, circa 1985. Some of this is taken from his unreleased Warner Bros. Rubberband album. Sadly, these are not full versions of these songs. They have yet to be released officially. Definitely some funky stuff. This needs to be released!
The “video” looks like it’s of a MD interview and shows Miles sketching as he talks.
Songs include: “Maze,” “Rubberband,” “See I See,” “Digg That” and “Street Smart Cues,” (from the film Street Smart).
Taken from the great Thelonious Monk with John Coltrane album, comes this beautiful rendition of the Monk classic. Coltrane sounds superb on this one.
The great Peggy Lee doing the definitive version of “Black Coffee” (which Julie London also did a good version of), from her classic album of the same name, originally released in 1953 (then expanded & re-released in 1956).
Guitarist Grant Green’s take on the James Brown classic, from the 1970 album Green Is Beautiful…
This Milt Jackson piece comes from his 1972 Sunflower album and was used on the De La Soul track “Patti Dooke” from 1993.
