Blue Break Beats (Blue Note Series) Volume 1

Blue Breaks

For those of us grinding it out this morning at the office, or wherever you at, here’s a solid collection of classic Blue Note jazz compositions that have been sampled throughout hip-hop’s history.

This is the first of four similar compilations by Blue Note Records. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Blue Note is THE premier jazz label of, well, all time.

You might recognize sax guru Lou Donaldson’s “Who’s Making Love” from a certain legendary BK rapper’s catalog (among others) or piano maestro Herbie Hancock’s “Oliloqui Valley” used by one of rap’s greatest DJ & MC combos.

Feel free to vibe out to these jazz classics this morning, remembering where hip-hop came from. Enjoy!
