Ahhh somebody better listen to this, it's a real shame to waste this song on a Sunday
I'm setting this up on Friday knowing they'll be no video on Sunday if I don't.
29 Dec 1982
This album is still so intriguing to me.
Catch yourself an early preview of the Summer Mix in today's FMD post.
Also, Kamasi's new album drops today.
Think I'll do this a few more times and then retire this tag...forever. It's nice they used this TFF track and not that damn Donnie Darko song.
I keep my eyes on Shabaka Hutchings' many collaborations. In addition to this band, he also currently records & performs with his "Afro-Futurist" band Shabaka & the Ancestors, Afro-Carribean jazz supergroup Sons of Kemet, and the jazz-punk sextet Melt Yourself Down. Oh, and he's also recorded with Mulatu Astatke and the Sun Ra Arkestra. This video's misnamed; the track is actually "Journey Through the Asteroid Belt."
It occurred to me recently while listening to some song that I can't recall off the top of my head (maybe Portugal the Man's "Feel It Still?") that I really like bass/baritone saxophone. Something about it really seems to hit a sweet spot in a lot of songs for me.
