Happy 37th Jay Dee.

James Yancey would have been 37 today. Nearly broke my neck listenin’ to ‘Dedication to the suckers earlier’, then got goosebumps a minute later when the tune changed to ‘Trashy’ off the Vintage album. No-one did it like him, and no-one ever will. To change the emotion of the individual who is listening to his music in a second takes some doing, and losing Dilla, we lost a true great in the game. I urge you to put some Jay Dee on tonight and appreciate one of the best to ever do it.

Happy Birthday Jay Dee, always love. You are truly missed.
