#37/100 – Madlib – Shades of Blue

The Beat Kondukta got a chance to dig in to the archives of Blue Note, one of the premiere jazz labels, and was able to take samples and do some reinterpretations of tracks from artists in the past. It’s a very neat concept that works very, very well. Madlib does his thing very well on Distant Land, from Side A, originally by Donald Byrd. It’s a fun, jangling track with a super bass line, Common samples, and just a lovely flow throughout.
