Video: Suite for Ma Dukes Orchestra – Take Notice

This is crazy.

In 2009, VTech and Mochilla put on a 3 part event series entitled “Timeless,” showcasing The Suite for Ma Dukes orchestra, Mulatu Astatke, and Arthur Verocai, and March 2010, they will be releasing a limited edition box set DVD of each event, w/ extra behind the scenes footage, poster, exclusive music, full liner notes, etc. Although the Suite for Ma Dukes event maybe most relevant and of interest, w/ it’s features from Posdnuos (De La Soul), Dwele, Bilal, Talib Kweli, Common, Karriem Riggins, and many others, all 3 events help create a bridge between producer/arrangers of yesteryear to the modern day hip hop producer.

    Man I’m all for Jay Dee’s mom seeing some money but why do people think it’ll sound cool if an orchestra plays this shit?

    The original beat sounds much better. Precisely cause Jay Dee was a great producer. The way he chopped, mixed, filtered his beats made them amazing. The sounds good and I guess it’s a tribute but it isn’t touching the original work.

    >> Man I’m all for Jay Dee’s mom seeing some money but why do people think it’ll sound cool if an orchestra plays this shit?

    the press release didn’t say anything about her seeing a dollar from this.

    the event they did last year was to raise money for her to able to pay her medical bills

  18. Sleep Says:

    Knicks will get the 6th spot and will beat 5th seed in the first round. They’ll get bumped in the second round. Lebron will sign with us this summer and the world will be back in order

    2011 roster

    Pg- duhon
    Sg-gallinari
    Sf-chandler
    Pf- lebron
    C-lee

    Lebron will be playing out of position but fuck it.

    He did beats for Busta Rhymes, Common, Q Tip, A Tribe Called Quest, Janet Jackson, etc. Plus shows overseas, etc. I’m sure he was bringing in some loot.

    Anyway, “real paper” means different things to different folks. You don’t have to be jay-z to keep your moms’ light bill paid.

    cosign.. LOL @ the conductor blacking out tho. .

  48. ScrapintheD Says:

    If they want to give some money for Ma Dukes why doesn’t Vtech just give her money instead of exploiting her son? And whats the correlation between a company that makes kids toys and Dilla? Something fishy going on.

  49. tbake Says:

    Interesting to read the random notes here – especially about getting Ma Dukes paid..why did you think we did the show? Those of us that A) knew Dilla and B) know Ma Dukes well know that we all work hard all year to keep the flow going. She was also very inspired by the show and total album proceeds from Suite for Ma Dukes go to Ms. Yancey. So I guess if you don’t know the 411, maybe you shouldn’t blather on randomly about ish you know nothing about. It’s like all the people that came out the wood work after he passed..where were they when Jay needed help the most? No where…..
