COPPED: The Timeless DVD Box Set
by Winston "Stone" Ford
J Dilla – Take Notice (Bob Power mix)
As most of y’all know, I’m headed out to LA in four weeks, however I ALMOST rolled out there last year to be in the audience as a live orchestra recreated the sounds of Dilla with A Suite for Ma Dukes. Out of all the clutter of Dilla tributes that have dropped since his death, last April’s is the most poignant by far. In addition to Dilla, Timeless also saluted the likes of Ethiopian Jazz great Mulatu Astatke, and Arthur Verocai.
All three concerts were filmed and will be released to DVD on March 10th, 2010 in a limited edition (only 4,000) boxed set. Further information regarding the project can be found here.
