I have a propostion for you–my third born (the others have already been promised to lenders and the like)–for information on a song that I only heard once and cannot get out of my head. I think it’s Cannonball Adderly but cannot find any evidence to corroborate that. It’s got a really hot, kinda pensive bass intro (upright bass) accompanied by timpani drums. It’s about (maybe over) 8 minutes long. I really would like to know the name of the song so I can get a copy of it.
The other song I cannot find even though I know the title and artist: Trying’ Times by Roberta Flack (I already have the Donny Hathaway version; it’s her version I want). I’ve tried Limewire, which is usually very comprehensive, but no success with this cut.
How I would love to play these songs ad nauseum on my mp3 player. Bring a smile to the face of a girl slowly drowning in un-graded papers…before she, she…..gargle, gargle, gasp
