Some more runoff from the headspace I’m currently in working on an upcoming radio set. I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been mixing Susan Christie’s “Paint A Lady” with Kathleen Emery’s “I Feel Like A Motherless Child”. A lady psych-funk trifecta, here is the third slice of that work in progress – the seven and half minute jazz-soul exploration that is Joy Of Cooking’s “Did You Go Downtown?“. Circa 1971, the track works itself into a propulsive groove riffing on Toni Brown and Ruby Green’s call and response vocals. Sliding into a kalimba solo (yup, thumb piano, y’all), “Downtown” ultimately culminates in an inspired two and half minute vocal scat.
