APM Jazz Samples !LINK!

Why do hip-hop producers gravitate toward jazz samples? For a mood, for sonic timbre, for a unique rhythmic component. Swing is a precursor to the boom-bap. "If you're a hip-hop producer that wants a lot of melodic stuff happening," pianist Robert Glasper says, "you're probably going to go to jazz first."

APM Jazz Samples

In this short doc, Glasper identifies three jazz samples, from tracks by Ahmad Jamal and Herbie Hancock, that have served as source material for famed hip-hop producers J Dilla and Pete Rock.

Joe Sample, legendary pianist and member of the jazz super group the Crusaders, passed away in September. He was 75. Sample died in his hometown of Houston, Texas on September 12 due to complications from lung cancer.

As a host of late night jazz radio for years the music of the Crusaders has always been the "sure thing" to add a funky, fun groove to a program. Joe Sample's artistry and ability to sustain that groove will be deeply missed.

Vernon was born in Belize and raised in Los Angeles. Arriving in the Midwest as a teenager, he discovered an insatiable interest in learning how to create music and taught himself how to play various instruments. This passion for music was, for a time, matched by his passion for sport. This led him to start a strength and conditioning gym created for people of underestimated and underrepresented backgrounds to feel welcomed, capable and whole in the world of strength and conditioning. As a Black business owner, community leader and athlete, he found 2020 to be a time of deep reflection. He made the decision to dedicate his attention full-time to his freelance audio-production business fusing hip-hop, jazz, pop and metal, and to put his degree in audio engineering and live sound to full use. Vernon sharpened his chops in the production aspect of live television broadcasting at KSTP in Minneapolis before joining Minnesota Public Radio in 2022. He remains committed to building community and uplifting underrepresented groups through the healing power of music

The original score for Fallout was composed by Mark Morgan as an ambient album and includes samples and remixes from other works. The score was released on CD by Interplay Productions in 1997. A selection of tracks was released to fans for free on May 10, 2010, as part of the Vault Archives album.[1][2]

The original score for Fallout 2 was composed by Mark Morgan as an ambient album and includes samples and remixes from other works as well as previous tracks from Fallout. The score was released on CD by Interplay Productions in 1998. A selection of tracks was released to fans for free on May 10, 2010, as part of the Vault Archives album.[1][2]

The game also features a radio station which is primarily accessible during the introductory level of the game. Among its announcements, it also plays instrumental jazz songs licensed from Sound Ideas which issued the album Frank's Place SI-N4 in 1995[72][67] and under its subsidiary Westar Music as Jazz - Effortless & Refined WSR 149 in 2003, composed by Jason Nyberg.[73][69][74] The tracks have been retitled and reissued multiple times with different authorship credits between the CD and digital reissues under Sound Ideas and its subsidiaries and licensees.[nb 21] Some songs are more popularly known by their titles from a 2010 digital album, Jazz Band Serenades, retitled and re-authored by the Essential Jazz Masters, though the album was issued after the game's release in 2008.[80]

Portions of the jazz instrumental tracks heard in Vault 101 were also used in the user-interface and background music of the 2015 vault-building simulator Fallout Shelter, a spin-off of the Fallout series. Additional tracks from the same album can be heard in Vault-Tec Radio from 2018's Fallout 76.

The game also features an additional radio station tied to the 2011 downloadable content Old World Blues. It features an original song "Begin Again" performed by the character Vera Keyes (see below for further details), as well as Peggy Lee's "Why Don't You Do Right?", Gerhard Trede's "Slow Bounce" and "Manhattan" reprised from the main game's radio station as well as several jazz instrumental tracks previously heard in the main game's casino lobbies.

The game also features a radio station which is primarily accessible during the introductory level of the game. It plays many of the same jazz instrumental tracks heard in Fallout 3's Vault 101 PA System with the exception of the track called Be-Bop Shop/Music to Burn/Jump for Joy. Two of the tracks are alternative mixes of the Fallout 3 versions present on the original 1995 Sound Ideas album composed by Jason Nyberg,[nb 93] but emphasize different instruments. It also features three additional tracks from the same album: A Night in Topeka/Sweet Cicely/You've Stolen My Heart, Someday/Straight and Narrow, and Dinner for Two/Wallflower/Last Dance of the Night. Several of the alternative mixes were re-released as a digital album using the Westar titles and reattributed to the Dinner Music Ensemble for the 2015 album Date Night.[229]

In 2010's Fallout: New Vegas Ivănescu summarizes the Mojave Music Radio and Radio New Vegas stations as respectively providing the cowboys and the crooners that "invoke both freedom and violence, both unlimited possibilities and corruption and crime."[275] Instead of visions of Middle America and white picket fences, the soundtracks of a post-apocalyptic version of Las Vegas "represent yet another facet of the American Dream: the one associated with explorers, pioneers and making your fortune." The surrounding empty wasteland is represented through the lyrics of "Stars of the Midnight Range" while the glamour of the desert city of New Vegas and its casinos is conveyed through Rat Pack veterans Frank Sinatra's "Blue Moon" and Dean Martin's "Ain't That a Kick in the Head". Along with Nat King Cole's "Love Me As Though There Were No Tomorrow", all three songs evoke love, capitalism, and sexual promiscuity from Sin City though Martin's song also echoes the violence of passion and the literal kick/gunshot in the head suffered by the player character at the beginning of the game.[276] Ivănescu notes that four songs play across all of the main radio stations in Fallout: New Vegas: "Johnny Guitar", "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie", "Heartaches by the Number", and "Big Iron". All four "present warnings and moral judgement" singing about people who "find their comeuppance" in the country, film noir, and femme fatale genres. "Big Iron" features an explicit example of tracking down a criminal while "Why Don't You Do Right?" serves as a reflection of the player's action on the game world.[258] "Johnny Guitar" rounds off the setlist, bridging the gap between the two worlds invoking the "glamour of a casino as much as a saloon" from its title western and Peggy Lee's sultry voice.[277] Lopez noted that the same themes extended to the present day with more modern country and jazz songs "dated from 1990 to 2000" including "Let's Ride into the Sunset Together", "Lone Star", "Slow Sax", and "Sit and Dream". With modern musicians tackling age-old themes in a contemporary fashion, the "illusion was seamless" among the older songs on the Fallout: New Vegas soundtrack.[278]

Rejjie Snow takes pride in being an anomaly. An Irish-born rapper with a world perspective, outspoken views and jazz-inspired beat selections, Rejjie, born Alexander Anyaegbunam, has always been an outlier.

I've just never really gravitated towards the stereotypes with hip-hop and the perceptions and what comes with rapping. I've just always been more into the geeky kind of stuff, people like MF Doom and the samples he uses that were jazz samples and stuff. For me, I've always been more into jazz and stuff like that 'cause that's kind of the first music that I heard growing up and it's the one that inspired me the most.

Unlike The Teletaker samples uses Weather Channel Music, Logically Ruined Production Music Samples were uses APM Production Music that are most likely used in other television shows, Including the Ren & Stimpy Soundtrack and etc. and unlike previous works, Logically Ruined Production Music is composed to 1950's and 1970's light orchestral music as opposed to 1990's jazz music.

Between the beats and rhymes of every hip-hop song is a story. A rapper catches a snapshot of their experiences with the lyrics. Meanwhile, the DJ or producer often samples older songs for the beat, in turn creating a lineage of music.

Scientists think they've found a building block of life, and they found it on an asteroid. A robotic spacecraft returned samples that could provide clues about the beginnings of life on Earth. NPR's Geoff Brumfiel reports.

AMY WILLIAMS: It's always exciting to have sample return missions because when we can collect samples from where they're made, it actually removes all of the bias of a potential terrestrial contamination.

When Ellington (1899-1974) debuted his first of three sacred concerts in 1965 at the New Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, the idea of presenting secular music in church was anathema to some who thought of jazz as sinful music morally fit only for dens of iniquity like bars and bordellos.

A tribute to Kitt by anyone else might well have degenerated into a sad mix of earthy kitsch. Not so with the mesmerizing Marie, who has found a kindred creative spirit and mother figure in the bold and fearless, seductive and also quite artful Kitt. Tickets: $35.00.

The death of the cougar late last year set off a debate between the tribes in the Los Angeles area and wildlife officials over whether scientists could keep samples of the mountain lion's remains for future testing and research.

Some representatives of the Chumash, Tataviam and Gabrielino (Tongva) peoples argued that samples taken during the necropsy should be buried with the rest of his body in the ancestral lands where he spent his life. Some tribal elders said keeping the specimens for scientific testing would be disrespectful to their traditions. Mountain lions are regarded as relatives and considered teachers in LA's tribal communities. 041b061a72
