new york on my mind
it's one of these 12"s you sometimes pick up on pure instinct/luck in a 50c bin.
one you don't expect much at first but ends up as a nice surprise, listeners asking who's playin' and so on... not really a classic but one fave that survives the record bag long after hits and hypes got sleevedust on the shelves.
IF is a sensual whispered ballad, full of promising innuendos. BLOW is all flute, sax solos and hammond licks, solid 90's acid-jazz material, all delivered with tasty hip hop flava.
IF feat.tiffany rios
THTP appears to be well and alive downtown NYC. site info describes their style as" charlie parker meets coltrane meets marley marl"... ouch ! yes, i know, such comparisons could be scary... none of these giants came to my mind but i'll give these guys a break
i wasn't able to hear the samples of their current productions but apparently, both these tracks were released prior to the 2 albums.
more music,info and maybe shopping:
thanks to those who enjoyed the buckshot track and testified: here's the showbiz remix of breakfast@denny's.
thanks to the everxpanding blogcommunity's word of mouth, a few new/notsonew blogs with great music, ideas, fun and good writing : jazz and conversation, nite songs, futurismain'tshit...
thanks avocado kid for the broken link, i think it's fixed now.
