Michael Leonhart & The Asvamina 7
Truth and Soul Records have been putting out some killer releases lately, and this jam could easily be on the top of the list. You will be getting a steady dose of Truth and Soul Records considering two or three of my favorite bands are on the label, such as El Michels Affair and Lee Fields and the Expressions. Accomplished jazz trumpeter, singer, songwriter, and session musician Michael Leonhart has worked with the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, David Byrne, and believe it or not- Steely Dan! He has been working with Steely since 1996, and has decided to bring the fire with this recording. This track is titled "Scopolamine," a repetitive unforgiving trumpet and drums that is extremely simple and raw, yet highly effective. This experimental track is unlike anything I've heard before, see if you like it and don't be shy, leave a comment! Apparently many people have had troubles trying to leave comments, I apologize- it is fixed now and should be self explanatory.
