It’s a great dose of jazz in which Madlib focuses on the soul and jazz stuff he used for the recordings. With songs by among others Herbie Hancock, Horace Silvers and Donald Byrd the 12-track album gives you an indication of the way Madlib created his pieces..
All of these tracks are great selections for this compilation, but Ronnie Foster's "Mystic Brew" stood out most to me. it is a great performance. The Andrew Hill tune, "Illusion",, is also a standout.
Song for My Father is a 1965 album by the Horace Silver Quintet, released on the Blue Note label in 1965. The album was inspired by a trip that Silver had made to Brazil....
Distant land" by Donald Byrd. This track was previously unreleased and comes from the "Black Byrd" recording session in the 70's. Just like the rest of that LP, this was produced by the great Mizell Bros..
also a Mizzell Brothers Producion At age 43, Donald Byrd definately "Stepped Into Tomorrow" with this album because it sounds just as good today as it did then. The sax's and Byrd's trumpet have some of the most soothing, melodic tones you'd ever want to hear. The vocals are also excellent.
