C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Nobukazu Takemura

If you like jazz and hip hop, then you'll thoroughly enjoy the musical stylings of Nobukazu Takemura

George Clinton once said that "funk is the DNA of hip hop," which is a statement that I would absolutely agree with. However, I'd take it a step further and say that jazz is the DNA of funk. So, when you skip a generation in blending two genres, you get something that sounds like this. Nobukazu Takemura has a unique sound all his own including sounds not only from jazz and hip hop, but from his native Japan as well.

What are you listening to tonight?

Artist: Nobukazu Takemura
