|R.I.P. 1932 - 2013|
HipHop producers AGoNY & eLiMenCe put together a tribute called "In Flight" for the late great jazz trumpeter Donald Byrd. The saturday after his passing eLiMenCe & AGoNY went through his extensive catalog, sampling just a small fraction of it to create this beat mixtape in celebration of his life's work, and in remembrance of the late jazz musician.
Donald Byrd was one of the first musicians ever to be sampled by DJ's and Producers. He is definitely a Legend in the HipHop World practically every body from Nas, A tribe called quest, Large Professor, Common, Pete Rock and 2Pac to Action Bronson, Smoke Dza & SlaughterHouse just to name a few have recycled his work. He also collaborated with another great Legend the late Guru (of Gang Starr) on the Jazzmatazz series. The EP is available for stream and free download at the below check it out for yourself. Remember Legends are born not manufactured.
