This is how a mix gets started: just by having a favorite tune pop into your head … in this case, Van Morrison's "Sweet Thing" from the 1968 album Astral Weeks, featuring the extraordinary bass work of Richard Davis … The sliding bass note that kicks off Sweet Thing means all of music to me: the synchronized perfection of timing and tone that became a core constituent of my appreciation and expectations of music over time … this was the album that made me realize how each element can be independently apprehended within the whole … and then the sheer dazzling beauty of the recitative rolling through the song like a jet of ink coursing thru clear water …
So I looked to follow this song with more music that made me feel the same way, or that was played with the same impressive technical facility, sustaining the vibe with tracks much newer in spirit and execution … tracks that aim to maintain the b-line complexity, building towards a nu-jazz conclusion full of solid musicianship and vocals. The sweet soul persuasion of Maxwell's Everwanting keeps this mix grounded in the sensual … setting us up to end in a blaze of saxophonic glory and the commanding beauty in the voice of Fontella Bass.
