26/11/2020: “Snow Creatures” by Quincy Jones

Quincy Jones is on the more ‘experimental’ end of Jazz. Frankly, a lot of his music dives into glittering pools of weirdness and splashes iridescent noise all over the place.

He is, undoubtedly, one of those rare musical geniuses, playing multiple instruments with panache and laying out a strange vision of sound according to some inner master plan.

“Snow Creatures” is from the 1972 soundtrack album, Dollars,

The song has been sampled by a sprawling list of hip hop artists, such as Gang Starr, J Dilla, Madlib and Quasimoto.

Listen below to feast your ears on the ominous brass, warped drums, eerie guitars and otherworldly vocals which populate this song!
