"Summer vibes with a MESSAGE. Sort of Gil Scott Heron meets Sly Stone via Public Enemy. The radio "concept" can grate after a few listens though."
Miles Ahead

"Could have filled the list with Miles but if I can only save one it's this. The tightness of "Kind of Blue" with a Big Band swing."

"Don't have this but have a stack of vinyl I once again nicked from my dad.Innovated so many forms of music - including the Whitney/Mariah type ballad (don't hold that against him though.)"
