The Breakdown: Get down (all jazzy like)

Nas had me all thinking about the get down again so this Friday we were off to something you might find his father Olu Dara on.

Gene Russell - Get Down (Black Jazz LP 'Talk To My Lady', 1973)
It's all about the bass and drums with this one. Real killer funky jazz where the band grooves out but still stays in the pocket the whole time. Nothing else to say...

Weldon Irvine - We Gettin' Down (RCA LP 'Spirit Man', 1975)
Weldon starts off all Herbie Hancock then next thing you know you're into a break and then get's all 'Award Tour' on you. R.I.P. Master Wel, a true genius.
