Gil Scott-Heaven: A Tribute

Happy Bearthday to Gil Scott-Heron (April 1, 1949). This short mix is comprised of three movements, each based on a song i’ve been listening to a LOT in recent weeks.

I hope that you enjoy this project and that it inspires you to (re)discover Gil Scott-Heron’s ¬†collection (Pieces of a Man &¬†Midnight Band: The First Minute of a New Day are my faves).

Movement 1: “Intro Peace”
Based on “Peace Go With You, Brother (1974)

Movement 2: “Be No Rain”
Based on “I Think I’ll Call It Morning” (1971)

Movement 3: “Troubles Away”
Based on “Lady Day & John Coltrane” (1971)
