Listen Here Now: “Community Theme Song” by Wycliffe Gordon

 

Turn it UP!

“Community Theme Song” – titled “The Theme” on The CO-OP LP (2017) exclusively on Brown Brothers Recordings, is a late 60’s sounding (but wholly original) soul-jazz burner written by the great Wycliffe Gordon.

This song is featured on Side A (track #2) of the LP, and with beautiful communal backing by Derrick Hodge on bass, Warren Wolf on Vibraphones, Kendrick Scott on drums, and the soulful stylings of Mr. Jeremy Pelt on Trumpet.

This song was performed live and during both sets (to our knowledge the only “live in front of an audience” performances ever) on 1/22/18 @ The Blue Note in NYC during the flagship Jazz-Ageddon engagement (wait a second, did he just say Jazz-Ageddon?).  This live performance was backed by Ray Angry on Keys, Warren Wolf on Vibes, Ben Williams on bass, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, James Carter and Tia Fuller on saxophones and Marcus Gilmore on drums (or was it Ali Jackson on drums)….

We hope you enjoy this one and check out the other music we’re sharing on this site and elsewhere.  If the music moves you, please share liberally with yer friends and loved ones.  This is music that makes the heart and soul stronger, performed by a cast of elite gentlemen and artists.

#NowJazz forever.
