M.I.A. “Paper Planes”
from Kala (XL Interscope 2007) —I haven't played this one in a long time. I love the use of the Clash sample from "Straight To Hell" on this.
Gregory Porter “Hey Laura”
from Liquid Spirit (Blue Note 2013) —Great week for announcements of upcoming concerts in St. Louis. Gregory Porter will be at the Touhill Performing Arts Center in 2016 (February 6). Hey, it never hurts to plan ahead.
The Staple Singers “For What It’s Worth”
