Big Band Tuesday

I love the way Donald keeps sidetracking the band in this clip..

Kicked off by Ejaydee and Steenbeck's discussion about Pete Rock, I looked up the sample he used for T.R.O.Y., which was a sixties recording by saxophonist Tom Scott.

Scott also played some very nice Saxello on a 7/4 version of "Freedom Jazz Dance" by the Don Ellis big band.
The second piece is "Ahunk Ahunk", by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis big band, another innovative, late sixties-early seventies big band also sampled by Pete Rock.

NIce, nice and nice. Thanks, Nilpferd, wonderful post. Possibly more comments tomorrow when relative calm is restored here.
