DJ Grizz- Gil Scott Heron Mix

Time for an artist mix and what an artist- the late great Gil Scott Heron. A song writer, singer, poet, activist and more, this somewhat troubled soul brought us some of the best soul-jazz with a message you could get until his battles caught up with him at age 62.

We start with a jazz funk dancer in Race Track in France, there's his funky tribute to Billie Holiday and John Coltrane, a live take on the anthem The Bottle, there's a collaboration with Brian Jackson on Show Bizness from the Secrets LP, and we finish off with 2 wind down tracks in A Lovely Day and the sublime Your Daddy Loves You from the seminal Winter in America LP plus more 3 Heron classics.

Mr S up soon and will catch you in a week with more soul n grooves from the rare side!
