The Original Sample:
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.
