Grant Green ft. Charles Bradly by Mr. Jukes off the 2017 God First LP
I had this song in my head for weeks after hearing on The Morning Session with Derek Smith on KMHD (weekday mornings from 7-10am PST) – such a dope show btw!
Anyways I couldn’t place the song… I just kept singing “YOU” in my head so I wouldn’t forget it.
Today I finally called Derek Smith on the studio line and sung him my best rendition over the phone. He was so hyped! He knew the track right away and instantly dropped a bunch of knowledge about where it was from (totally a Grant Green sample which STLB3 later pointed out as Aint’ it Funky Now ) and that this was one of Charles Bradley’s last songs…
Then he played the track for today’s 8 o’clock eye opener – basically a Jam of the Week that happens every day, not just whenever he gets around to posting.
Max respect Derek – Max respect crew! Max respect YOU!
