The Original Sample:
Bustin’ Out Of Doors by Stark Reality
This week’s sample selection is inspired by several trips to the Boston area during the past month. In doing some research regarding Boston’s music scene, I discovered that the jazz/rock fusion group, Stark Reality, was originally formed there — most of it’s members attended Berklee College of Music. This week’s sample comes from their 1970 release, Discovers Hoagy Carmichael’s Music Shop which is a highly improvised concept album which is inspired by Hoagy Carmichael’s children’s show which appeared on PBS. Below is a snippet from the show — interestingly enough, you’ll notice the first song that Carmichael plays at 1:12 is the original inspiration that Stark Reality used for this week’s sample. I guess that means this week’s submissions are interpretations of an interpretation. Solid submissions all around.
