Memory Lane instrumental

Any fan of hip-hop is familiar with Nas’ first album, illmatic (and if you’re not I urge you to go and listen to it right after you listen to this mp3). Produced buy DJ Premier, illmatic became an instant classic. Finally a band comes along to give an analog tribute to the sick production. Will Sessions are led by twenty-six year old trumpeter/pianist/arranger Sam Beaubien. Most of the other five members were born and bred in the Bay Area. Will Sessions have found a home in Detroit but there funky sound is truly region-less.
