Seven O'Clock Sample Time!!!!

This past weekend I was enjoying my weekly dose of jazz, when I happened upon this Kenny Barron Trio album. Kenny's got a style that makes my Sunday coffee taste a little bit smoother...

In the 1960s, Kenny played with the Dizzy Gillespie quartet. He has gone on to work with hundreds of well-known musicians including Yusef Lateef, Freddie Hubbard, Buddy Rich, Ron Carter, and Stan Getz.

Check out his version of FUNGII MAMA....


If that sounds like you've heard that before... well you have! That sample was used by the Basement Jaxx on the album Rooty for their hit Do You Thing...


Great video huh?
