Gotta Be Funky Blue Note

More funky Blue Note for the aficionado. Funky chill from the jazz label that was founded by German immigrants Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff. Some time ago I did a Blue Note mix for I tried to do something similar with this collection of songs from the Blue Note and Capitol archives. Blue Mitchell’s ‘Good Humour Man’ has been sampled many, many times. Most notably by UMC’s (‘One to grow on’).
