Stro Elliot – Kamaal Coltrane

A nod to his often used style of chord progression, John Coltrane’s Giant Steps became a Jazz Standard and powered one of my favorite tunes on Q-Tip’s Amplified. Let’s Ride samples Joe Pass’ guitar-led version on the original Dilla creation but L.A. producer Stro Elliot deconstructs it and takes it back to the root while adding some additional flavor. The track becomes a dub of sorts, with Stro selecting phrases from Tip’s ballad to his chariot to remove any distraction from his crafty construction. Jeep lovers will especially love the bass heavy ending which actually returns Pass’ guitar to the mix!
