Daily Discovery - Lovely Is Today by Eddie Harris & His Electric Saxaphone - Plug Me In Lp Funk Jazz on Atlantic #1506. 60's Funky Jazz.

Side Two songs - Lovely Is Today - Theme In Search Of A T.V. Commercial - Winter Meeting
Another gem that Guru and crew from Gang Starr sampled on their song 2 Deep from the Daily Operation album. I've been on a funky jazz kick lately and this is right up my alley. The drums kick hard on so many of the songs so I had to look who played them and I come to find out there's two drummers, Grady Tate or Richard Smith. I am familiar with Grady's sound but not Richard's who does a fantastic job on the session as well. Funky album from start to finish.
Daily Discovery - Summer Ride by Brighter Side Of Darkness. 70's Sweet Soul from the original Love Jones LP. Love Jones was their big hit. Other favorites of mine on this Lp is "I Owe You Love" & "I'm A Loser" "Something To Remember You By" which I also love by the Chicago Northern Soul group the Ledgends on Red Balloon. New summer jam??
Daily Discovery - Give It To Me by Mike James Kirkland. This is Mike from the Los Angeles 60's Soul Group Mike & The Censations that sang "There's Nothing I Can Do About It". Nice Modern Soul cut from the rare Lp Hang On In There on the Bryan label.
Daily Discovery - Uncle Jam by Funkadelic. Happy 4th of July! Groove to this Uncle Sam tune with a George Clinton twist. Enlist yourself to the Funk. From the Uncle Jam Wants You album lesser known as "Rescue Dance Music From The Blahs". A Funk collectors must have classic Lp that features Freak Of The Week and (Not Just) Knee Deep. (Not Just) Knee Deep was sampled by a slew of legendary rappers and hip hop artists including De La Soul, LL Cool J, EPMD, Digital Underground, Dr. Dre featuring Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy, Ice Cube, 2Pac and most recently by Black Eyed Peas.
