Stray Phrases – J Dilla’s Donuts

This is absolute dopeness right here…

We all know it’s (what would have been) the 37th birthday of J Dilla. Well, in October of 2010 jazz trio/NYU students Stray Phases (Storm Siegel on drums, Dave Mainella on piano and Evan Crane on bass) performed James’ instrumental masterpiece Donuts in its entirety. I’ve been listening to this over and over and over now, and I think all music fans will do the same. Major props to TheSmokingSection for unearthing this gem.
