Smooth Sax of the Week
So I was listening through Reflection Eternal's (Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek) classic album Train of Thought, and as soon as "Love Language" featuring Les Nubians rolled around, I thought, "Yes! "Love Speakeasy" comes next." Seriously, when was the last time you heard of someone getting excited over an interlude? If so, do tell. Sure, Elton John did play piano on the "All of the Lights (Interlude)". However, as much as I respect Elton John and his music, that doesn't hold a candle (in the wind) to Hi-Tek's masterful production on "Love Speakeasy". The track comes in at just under one minute and forty seconds, but it's just long enough to set a smooth groove thanks to the sampling of Norman Connon's "Welcome". The clip above features an extended loop of "Love Speakeasy". Can't hate that. I never get tired of that saxophone.
