I am surprised no one mentioned the updated version of Killer Joe by its
composer on Benny Golson's 1977 Columbia album Killer Joe. This is a
proto-type "rap" song with lyrics by the Q and rap by Ted Lange of That's My
Mama ooooooooooweeeeeee fame. If I am not mistaken Ted later showed up on
the Love Boat series.  besides the New Killer Joe Rap the album features
Wille Bobo, Poncho Sánchez(quite early in his career), Stanley Clarke, Ernie
Watts, Jerome Richardson, Frank Rosolino and others standouts.
