The propulsive groove and gentle funk sample of The Roots‘ “Dynamite” (produced by the great J Dilla) single the track out as a classic.
Placebo were a Belgian jazz band with a four-piece brass section that cut albums from 1971 to 1974. Their debut LP, Balls Of Eyes, is known as being their best effort (it also won a prize at 1972’s Montreux Jazz Festival). Off that LP comes this track, “Humpty Dumpty,” with a fusion of jazz, funk, and chillness. Famously sampled by J. Dilla.
