Around the Blogs: "Holy Thursday" from David Axelrod

Apr 21, 2011

Why post something myself when I can share a perfect posting for today from one of the better music blogs around, the revamped scratchynoise. It's a must visit site almost very day of the week,

He posted David Axelrod's "Holy Thursday" , a track from Songs of Experience, a slice of psychedlic jazz circa 1968. If you're not familar with Axelroad's solo work, you probably know him as the producer of the widely praised "Mercy Mercy Mercy" by Cannonball Addlerly, with whom he worked for years. Otehr production credits of note include Harold Land's The Fox, and releases from David McCallum, the Electric Prunes (!) and Nat Adderly.

Crate differs from around the world sample his work regularly in hip-hop tunes (he's a fixture on the Blue Break Beats series), and even the video game industry has put his songs in their soundtracks(Grand Theft Auto IV). "Holy Thursday" samples appear in a number of songs, including Apache's "Tonto", Artifacts' "C'mon wit Da Git Down", Beatnuts'"Hit Me with That", Black Sheep's "Without a Doubt" and InI's"Think Twice".
