3288. Quincy Jones - Summer in the City
From: You've Got It Bad Girl; Year: 1973; Genre: Jazz Fusion/Funk
I was thinking about some of Quincy Jones' music this morning and as luck would have it yet again it's a Funky Friday.
This cover of the Lovin' Spoonful's hit classic is simply amazing to hear. Everything in this entire piece fits together to make a smooth yet gritty sound; those bass and drums carry the song whilst the keys lay down that amazing melody over the top; just an spectacular take on such an already great song.

Hear Summer in the City on YouTube.
