Drummer Otis Brown III‘s debut record called, The Thought Of You, will be released on Revive/Blue Note Records on September 23rd. The title track features R&B singer, Bilal. I normally don’t like vocals in jazz, but they don’t bother me on this track since they are all within the first minute and pretty well-placed. The trumpet here is great and I really like the change in the rhythm at about the 1 minute mark. Basically I think this track is pretty awesome and I’m looking forward to hearing the LP.
