5 O'Clock Shadow 4-4-13: Grazing in the Grass

Click to enlarge

It may be a little chilly out still, but the summer sun is coming. I promise! What a better way to celebrate the return of warm(ish) weather than "Grazing in the Grass?" 

Originally recorded as an instrumental by South African jazz musician Hugh Masekela, the Friends of Distinction put some vocals over the tune and gave it a little bit of a spring in its step. We're left with a summery jam that will hopefully hurry the arrival of warmer weather.

Listen to both tracks below and tune in to the 5 O'Clock Shadow weekdays at 5pm.
