ITT: Old soul/jazz/funk/rock songs that you think should be sampled in hip hop but haven't yet. E-diggers, emerge!
i have mixed feelings over nujabes just plagiarising songs and putting a drum track over them, on one hand it's kinda disappointing, on the other, now i've discovered some actual artists who are pretty swell

Weather Report- Live in Tokyo- Medley IV
The Live in Tokyo version of Orange Lady
Yeah man I'm just getting my rhythm going.

If you listen to one thing, let it be those three Eddie Henderson albums or Steve Grossman- Some Shapes to Come
