Since it came out in 2003 or so Madlib's Shades Of Blue belongs to my favorite records i own,
first on cd, later on vinyl,
and it actually got me in jazz/blue note rec. ...

there is a skit called "Alfred Lion Interlude"...
and at the 0:26 mark there starts in the backround a nice jazz tune and i always wondered about who it was ...?

my guess would be someone like ike quebec or wayne shorter,
but... i never figuered out

anyone got a clue about that ?

In highschool I played parts of that album for my piano teacher (a jazz buff) to make a point about why hip-hop is actually music, etc. He told me that the sound clip used was from a documentary on Blue Note, I'm guessing it was this one IMDB Blue Note. If so, then you could probably find the soundtrack somewhere or maybe the names of the songs in the credits. Good luck to you!

I know the sound clip at the beginning came from Art Blakey's "At The Cafe Bohemia Vol. 1".

Kind of surprised to see Blue Note reissued SOB for the 75 year anniversary. Get that paper Otis.

I was surprised it needed to be reissued, seemed like you could pick up the record anywhere for about $10-15

I loved the concept but I wasn't really taken by this project. Don't get me wrong so soil of them to let him go thru their catalogue what with his great understanding of jazz.
