Old School Friday: Jazz Rebirth

This week's Old School Friday is all about Jazz. Since I disappeared for a long time, I thought my choice was fitting as a rebirth of my status. Enjoy the Jazz and Rap Fusion!

Digable Planets- Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat)


And because I can make anything become related to Do The Right Thing, peep Spike's use of jazz, hip hop, and Spanish music to create this scene. ( No it's not my You Tube account, but I did have to write an essay on this clip.)



Happy OSF!

Random sidenote: Thelonious Monk went to my high school. There was a memory cube on the first floor (music floor) dedicated to him.

  1. DP need to come back to the music scene.

    I love the DTRT clip. I can't believe you remembered that clip for this week's theme. Great choice!

  2. Very, very nice choices. I used Rebirth of Slick for one hit wonder week. Nobody commented on that pick so glad to see someone recognize it again.

    Pure genius to pick a Spike Lee film. His use of jazz in his films has made me love him even more. Mo Betta Blues was one of the films that started me on my way to appreciating this genre.

    Happy OSF!
