A few years ago, FMF collaborator Pat Van Dyke and John Robinson released a 45 entitled “Miles & Trane” on Brick Records (alongside with Brooklyn’s Cotter Records) to commemorate the 86th birthday of John Coltrane. With PVD leading a live band, and Robinson on emcee duties, they proceeded to slay this jazzy track. An uptempo and positive side that did more than just pay homage to the two greats, it quickly sold out. Recently, the good people at Cotter found a few copies that are now available for purchase (see link below). We are giving two copies away here at FleaMarket Funk this week to two lucky winners in the United States.
Certain things the average person will just hear as a rap song, but if you’re a jazz head and you know anything about Miles and Trane, you’ll hear all of the references and be able to piece together who’s who. – John Robinson
