From K-Murdock:

Like many beat-makers out there, my introduction to jazz music came thru hip-hop and all the jazz samples being flipped by my favorite producers- Pete Rock, Premo, Q-Tip, etc.  Admittedly, it wasnt until i got tasked to help "image" the jazz stations while working as a "audio animator" at XM Radio, that i learned the distinct differences between all the jazz sub-genres.  I've always been more partial towards the "jazz-funk" fusion music from the '70s, but when my mentor Maxx Myrick, who created/ran the famous XM channel "Real Jazz", put me on to the history of the genre and its pioneers, it definitely opened me up to a whole new world of music!  In particular, it was John Coltrane and his "sheets of sound" style that ultimately helped develop my appreciation for "trad-jazz".  That shared appreciation brought myself and fellow artist/jazz-addicts Bilal Salaam & Wes Felton together back in 2003 to create this ode to the legendary John Coltrane.  I thought it only right to post this up since last week was his 83rd birthday...
