Default the ultimate ish otc funk/soul/jazz thread

so, there's a whole lot of talk about hip hop on this site. fair enough, it's pretty much the genre of our generation. however, i don't think there's enough discussion re: the music that inspired (and indeed was used as samples in) hip hop music.

this is the thread in which you post the illest oldskool jams you listen to.

i'll kick it off with:

RAMP (roy ayers musical project) - everybody loves the sunshine

donald byrd - wind parade (sampled by beatminers for black moon's 'buck em down')

funkadelic - maggot brain

johnny hammond - lost on 23rd street

idris muhammad - loran's dance

ahmad jamal - swahililand (used by jay dee for de la soul's 'stakes is high')

caesar frazier - sweet children (kanye jacked this)

marvin gaye - inner city blues

I've always been a Herbie Hancock man...

Here is Watermelon Man... maybe the funkiest opening to any song... ever.

maybe the best quintet Miles has ever lead. Wayne Shorter was/is just off the hook. Same goes for Ron Carter.

some nice soul/funk by Maceo Parker:

Y'all heard of Shuggie Otis (son of legend Johnny Otis?) Dude is very underrated and rare. Very ahead of his time, doing stuff in the late '60 and '70 which really didn't come widely used until decades later. Cat did the original Strawberry Letter.

Inspiration Information
Happy House
Island Letter
Pling
Rainy Day

some great picks in here from everyone. stylistics, shuggie otis (i was stuck on that album for a while), mingus, herbie, chick corea, miles, coltrane... just what i was hoping for.

i was sad to hear that the greatest hammond organist ever died just the other day.

RIP jimmy mcgriff
