I decided to post a second video since the Cowboys went down in flames. So, instead of hitting my TV or drinking, I’m listening to music.
One of my favorite albums (CD’s) of all time is Quincy Jones’ Back on the Block. The sound was the first thing that hit me. The list of great artists on this album include Ray Charles, Ice T, Barry White, Chaka Kahn and El DeBarge just to name a few. Somehow Quincy manages to mix the old with the new and get a GREAT sound. His version of Birdland is better than any I have ever heard before.
In this video you can see the great acapella gospel group Take 6 in the background. Al Jarreau looks like his just got out of rehab. It is a great tune nonetheless.
