Brother Jack McDuff Moon Rappin' LP Blue Note mint & sealed
Brother Jack McDuff’s Moon Rappin’ is one of those records which sets off a thousand sample-spots. The prolific jazz man made an incredibly catchy kind of jazz funk on this record, with the title track making for something of a peak of the genre in its cool and deadly groove. It’s got soul for days and plenty of compositional chops to keep you locked in for the duration. Equally, if you’re looking for hot breaks, they’re smattered all over this record thanks to Joe Dukes holding it down on the skins and McDuff working his magic on the organ. A timeless classic, Released in 1970, it features five funky, spaced-out originals including “Oblighetto,” which would later be sampled by A Tribe Called Quest as the foundation of their classic tracks “Scenario,” and “Check the Rhime.”
This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is stereo, all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
