Though the logic is a bit specious, we were nevertheless overdue to pay our respects to some of the amazing musicians who have passed with the last year.

Brooklyn Bound

This week on 7 o Clock sample, I’m exploring the music of Roy Ayers. Ayers redefined Americans Soul and Funk with his infectious vibraphone jazz styles. He recorded a number of amazing albums in the 60s and 70s, and still continues to write and record today.
In 1972, he released an album on Polydor called HE’S COMING. This album contained a number of funky jams, including this one…

This track has been sampled by many Brooklyn based Hip Hop artists, but my personal favorite comes from the Blowout Comb album by the Digable Planets.

Ahh yeah!

Video | Vampire Weekend, “Giving Up the Gun”

Ahh, the game of tennis. I have played for almost 18 years. However, I like how the Vampire Weekend used the game in their latest video for the song “Giving Up The Gun”. See if you can recognize the various cameos…
