Dave Brubeck: Take Five
We make this vol 3 of Ade Oduyemi's fave five playlists. Like the previous two, very excellent.
Take Five: Dave Brubeck
Just goes to show, one can be too successful for one's good. This is one of the finest jazz tunes ever, but suffers the ignominy of appealing to the uninitiated, and appearing on virtually every jazz compilation.
Let Me Show You: Bob James
I'm not sure I was ever a Michael Jackson fan, but music, like much else, can refuse to be categorised. (Ed's note: a difficult track to get hold of, it's on a Japanese CD of the Bob James' album Genie.)
Always There: Ronnie Laws
All the things that make life living are, if one stops to think, forever and always there.
I Want To Be Where You Are: Leon Ware
Another Michael Jackson song that has come around.
Till You Take My Love: Harvey Mason
