Podcast Episode 5 - Tribe's Vibes

After last week's blog post on Midnight Marauders, we (the royal we - meaning I) wanted to keep focus on A Tribe Called Quest; instead of highlighting favorite songs, the focus is instead on originals sampled by the hip-hop trio [excluding Jarobi].

I primarily stayed with samples from the ATCQ holy trinity: 1990's People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, 1991's The Low End Theory and the previously mentioned Midnight Marauders album from 1993. I also threw in a few joints that fall in the Tribe sphere (either produced by or a cameo from a group member).

While most of the podcast is jazz (Grover Washington, Roy Ayers, Dianne Reeves, etc) we also include some funk and soul.

Enjoy. Podcast listing after the bounce.
