Don't forget Gil Scott Heron, The Last Poets and the Fatback Band from the 60's & 70's. And more recent(?) Brand Nubian, Stetsasonic & A Tribe Called Quest are just a few of the hip-hp groups that incorporated jazz into their music.

This week's sponsor:  MACK AVENUE

Throughout his illustrious career, saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist/composer
Kenny Garrett has accumulated multiple Grammy(R) nominations, countless
collaborations, and a long list of accolades from his peers. With SKETCHES OF
MD, Garrett adds several historic firsts to his resume:  the first live
recording of the Kenny Garrett/Pharoah Sanders pairing, Garrett's first
recorded set at New York City's famed Iridium Jazz Club, and his first
release on Mack Avenue. In addition to Sanders, Garrett is joined on stage by
Nat Reeves on bass, Benito Gonzalez on keys and Jamire Williams on drums.


Mack Avenue is also proud to announce the signing of Grammy(R) Award-winning
acoustic and electric bassist Christian McBride.  McBride, who will celebrate
his 20th year in the industry in 2009, has several projects in the works for the
Detroit based label, which will be unveiled in the upcoming year.

The post on Bobby Robinson prompted me to recall that early next year I will
be making a presentation of jazz, blues and r n b music to a class of senior
high school music students as a prelude to Black History Month.

Rappin n rhymin on records goes back to the 1920s and before that on the
stage and street, I have many examples of proto type rap songs by Pops, Cab,
Louis Jordan and others as well as prison songs, signifying poetry etc  Do
you have any examples of what you feel maybe a proto type rap track
