Interesting link, Nawledge. I'm on a mac, so I can't try the software.

 

Would that link prove to a hater that dj's are intelligent? I don't see it. It's kind of like a skater writing some software that randomly links moves, or a sax player linking riffs in Cubase to transcribe & perform later.

 

I've heard lots of skater haters say "I can't believe they actually have names for all of those moves." I guess this could prove to someone that 'tablists are more than just "wikka wikka," it is about technique and new ideas.

Who ever said that?

 

Only the ones that play rap aren't intelligent.

The foremost expert on turntables & DJ's has spoken. The matter is settled. Move along, nothing to see here.

Benson yes, Montgomery no, school me though, are there any paticular links you recommend?

Oh man, really? Wes was beautiful. He was THE inspiration for Benson. To me he was the father of modern day jazz guitar, Charlie Christian fans might disagree.

 

Two songs I highly recommend, will QUICKLY give you and idea of what it's all about: "Movin' Wes, Part II" and "Tear It Down".

 

Usually horn players are the inspiration for guitar players, in terms of "phrasing". Wes turned the tables. His incredibly soulful and beautiful playing was inspirational to horn players and just about any jazz musician since the 1950s.

 

Wes Montgomery, the favorite of both Carlos Santana and Pat Metheny, and countless others, especially like someone we know in Englewood Cliffs, NJ.

Greetings all,

Have to get into this turntablism / george benson thread for a minute, as a fellow fan of the boom bap, you must must get your hands on LPs on the label CTI. All the late 80s / early 90s East Coast hip hop was super inspired by these sounds...

Creed Taylor is the guy who started the label with Herb Albert, it peaked in the late 60s and early 70s, George Benson is all over it as well as a great list of other amazing jazz cats (Freddie Hubbard, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Hubert Laws, Deodato, even Dizzy and Chet Baker did some work on this label).

Anyways, to find the source of some classic hip hop tracks, check these out -

 

Cherry - Stanley Turentine

Freddie Hubbard - Sky Dive

Bob James - One (Two is also solid)

 

All of these are amazing music, period.

One more to add:

 

Freddie Hubbard - First Light

 

Wanted to pass it on

Easy

Dahkter
