I was always a big fan of this song. I knew they were using samples from Blue Note recordings, but never bothered to track down the original source material.
But then it came and found me. I was listening to the radio, and some Herbie Hancock came on:
It’s great to listen to the original and compare it to US3’s interpretation. Both tracks are great, by the way, but right now I’m all about Herbie and his Cantaloupe Island.
