NIIIICE set for this segment. I noticed the Tribe Called Quest theme from Red Clay. The only question is that I guess I never read the liner notes for several of Tribe’s songs but I thought they sampled/interpolated The Last Poets’ “Tribute to Obabi” instead of ‘A Chant for Bu’

BTW, when Kalamu said, “Listen to his cymbal work. He is not keeping a steady one, two, three, four, instead he is accenting the beat, consistently playing in between the beats but maintaining momentum by using mini-breaks.” I would agree. However, I thought most GOOD percussionists do that anyway. Maybe I was misinformed.

BTW, Pot Belly does not work or sounds unusually garbled.

That was Brand Nubian. "Concerto In X Minor."

Nice work the last couple of weeks w/ The Tribe, then segue to jazz artists they’re connected to via sample. I’m a die-hard Blakey fan so was startled/excited to hear that the sample opening Low End Theory was Buhaina(‘s). Am thankful in the vein that Mtume alludes to for hip-hop artists leading me to so much fine jazz.
Speaking of, any way to tie in a post of “Up Jumped Spring” ? Maybe it’s me getting old and sentimental, but that song gets more beautiful every time I hear it.
