Chicago jazzman Oscar Brown Jr. died last Sunday.
He wasn’t perhaps sitting at the top of my personal pantheon of Jazz, but one of his track most definitely is.
But I was cool has to be the most hilariously infectious tune ever howled by a talented musician this side of the Funk belt, and the only way you should spend your next 2 minutes 55 seconds.
And until my bandwidth freezes over, or the vindicative Gods of Copyrighted Music kick me in the karma nuts, I’m gonna put the track for download on my server: please be nice and buy the album, it is well worth it. The trial sample is right here.
