Track of the Night – Bridge to ‘Bama, by Soulive and Talib Kweli

 

Soulive is one of my favorite jazz outfits – frenetic, jazzy, intricate, and complex. Here they team up with Talib Kweli for a nice jazzy rap tune. The acidic improvisation takes a back seat and (mostly) vamps underneath the vocals, and the result is a steady jazz groove, with an almost–walking quarter-note bass line.
