Single of the Day – Lalo Schifrin – Jaws | DaysAreNumbers
Hey! Sorry for lack of SOTD action, we’ve been incredibly busy, but don’t worry, as we’re back with a bang (or bite??!) with Lalo Schifrin’s cult classic ‘Jaws’.
In 1976, Schifrin released the album Black Widow, a smooth instrumental excursion that combined the musical dexterity of jazz with the dance-friendly rhythms of disco. Schifrin worked with session legends John Tropea, Anthony Newmark and Anthony Jackson. Also, the record was produced by Creed Taylor. With such a stellar jazz line-up, it was no wonder that it appalled jazz purists. Anyway, the track it self is a jarring, hypnotic, hard edged disco groover. The track is so funky and imaginative, it makes you forget the John Williams’ original and that bloody shark. Nice one Lalo! So, enjoy 6 and bit minutes of funky fishy fun.
