I'll get right on that. LOL. Although it might have to be S.D.'s Jazz Tune of the WEEK.  Very Happy

Rahsaan Roland Kirk covering Bill Withers' "Aint No Sunshine". You can hear Kirk talking the lyrics into his flute.

One of the most under-the-radar talents in 1960s jazz is Duke Pearson.  He was the A&R Director and house arranger for Blue Note Records from 1962 until 1971.  In addition to finding talent, providing songs and arrangements for other peoples sessions and selecting the master takes used on the released albums he also recorded several incredible albums under his own name during that era.  Duke was a fine piano player more or less in the Wynton Kelly mold, but his true genius was his writing and arranging for small groups, he had the ability to voice arrangements in a way that sounded like a much larger band was playing.  This song Bedouin was recorded several times on Blue Note in the 60s (famously on Grant Green's Idle Moments album...which is actually a Duke Pearson session that he let Grant get top billing on) but none better than this version from his 1964 album Wahoo.  

The lineup is as follows:  Donald Byrd (trumpet), James Spaulding (flute & alto sax), Joe Henderson (tenor sax), Duke Pearson (piano), Bob Cranshaw (bass) and Mickey Roker (drums).
