NORMAN BROWN - "Angel" [prod. by DILLA]

As big a Dilla head that I am, every now and then there still pops up a previously unknown production from the man that was neglected for inclusion on the Official Discography that Stones Throw compiled. And while I did like the new Slum Village LP I'd much rather listen to obscure tracks that Mr. Yancey actually had a hand in during his lifetime than any of these posthumously put together shit (post-"Jay Stay Paid" there really haven't been anything worthwhile released if you ask me). One such cut is "Angel", a mesmerizingly beautiful collaboration between smooth jazz guitarist and singer Norman Brown and producers J Dilla, James Poyser and Malik Pendelton. The song appeared on Brown's 2004 album "West Coast Coolin'". Another great track to add to the list of Jay Dee's many brilliant soul compositions and probably one of the last collaborations between Poyser and himself.
