VIDEO: Miguel Atwood-Ferguson & The Suite for Ma Dukes Orchestra – “Take Notice”

This is how you set the new year off properly, my friends.  Back in 2009 in sunny Los Angeles, VTech & Mochilla produced a three-event series called Timeless.  Although the Mulatu Astatke and Arthur Verocai shows proved to be extremely satisfying, it was the Suite for Ma Dukes event (a orchestral tribute to the late, great James ‘J Dilla’ Yancey, conducted by the amazing Miguel Atwood-Ferguson) that was easily the favorite of the entire collection. 

In March of this year, a DVD of the entire series will be made available for sale to the public.  Want a sneak peek at the Suite for Ma Dukes portion?  Of course you do.  Above, experience a beautiful re-creation of J Dilla’s “Take Notice” (from 2007′s Ruff Draft EP).  It’s kinda breathtaking seeing it in this light.

p.s. VTech was nice enough to let a nice, crispy MP3 of this go for your downloading pleasure.  Feel free to grab it below (pause).
