Erik Truffaz..

is simply a trumpet wizard!!

What can he do with it is sometimes simply unbelievable!!

If there is someone, who goes beyond the “traditional” jazz borders, than it is him!

This musician, originally born in Switzerland charmed me when I had been studying at college. Ask my roommates, who had to suffer long hours listening to this music 🙂

OK – let’s go deep in it!

  1. Beats To The Rhyme
  2. Can You Rock Like This
  3. It’s Like That
  4. It’s Tricky

Beastie Boys – only a hip-hop? No way!! :-)

Yup, Beastie Boys being a legendary formation for quite a long time, are not only about a hip-hop.

Even their last album – The Mix Up – is my most favourite one, of course with some singles from their previous albums. But as a whole – this one is the best to me!

These guys are simply great and I have to put them here to my music articles serie.

So – the first one – legendary and goddamn good video and music as well – Sabotage!

And yet another video, which deserves to be here – (You Gotta) Fight For You Right (To Party):

And now – the instrumental ones from their last album The Mix Up:

First – Off the Grid – namely the second half of this song is really something!

The Rat Cage:

Electric Worm:

And the final piece – quite good combination of Now Get Busy song and fan-clip of really great anime Samurai Champloo (recommend to all of you, who like Cowboy Bebop):
