Jay Dee / 40-Piece Orchestra

AWESOME. A 40-piece orchestra interpreting the music of the late great Jay-Dee. Arrangements by Miguel Atwood Ferguson. Lots of cameos throughout – here’s Pos and Talib doin Stakes is High and then the show closing with Illa J (Dilla’s little brother) singing over Fall in Love (footage courtesy of DERT).

There was a film crew there and it looks like it will be released as a DVD! It will be a must-have (at least for me). Thanks to YesYesYall for the heads up!

New J Dilla?

J Dilla might be pulling a Tupac on us here, it’s been a couple years since his death and there seems to always be unreleased material of his popping up. One such track circulating the net recently is Trucks – Dilla’s take on Gary Numan’s Cars. Although the vocals are kinda whateve, the beat is undeniably neck snapping Dilla goodness.

Trucks MP3 after the jump! Read More
