LADY DAY AND JOHN COLTRANE
originally played by Gil Scott Heron
Ma non finisce qui.
Ascoltatevi anche il soul-jazz atmosferico di Too Soon You're Old qui sotto. Sarà che da buon intenditore di Scott Heron impazzisco per il flauto, ma qui c'è da spellarsi le mani. Clap, clap, clap.
Altra chicca in uscita a fine novembre su Athens Of The North.
