Brother Jack McDuff - Moon Rappin'

Year : 1970
Label : Blue Note
Genre : Jazz
Style : Soul Jazz, Jazz Funk

Recorded in four days at New York in december 1969, Moon Rappin' is a typical Soul Jazz/Funk album of its time, featuring Richard Davis, Joe Dukes & the voice of Soul/Jazz singer Jean DuShon. In this second album for Blue Note, McDuff explores some space soundscapes with reverb effects incorporating Straight-Ahead Jazz codes, long bluesy inspirations with groovy organ & Wah Wah guitar. Moon Rappin' was sampled many times by various Hip-Hop bands as A Tribe Called Quest in their song Scenario (The Low End Theory - 1991), which contains a sample of Oblighetto, or more recently the eponymous track by the Hip-Hop collective from Brooklyn, Pro Era, for Vinyl extracted from their P.E.E.P: The aPROcalypse album in 2012. All tracks produced & arranged by Brother Jack McDuff.
