True Track 19:”No More” by Hubert Laws

There are very few songs where the flute has been given its chance to shine, and this is one of them.This jazz instrumental is composed by  flutist and saxophonist Hubert Laws. This piece features a calming tune, with a lead flute, accompanied by keyboard, and tambourines. At 2:27, there are some soothing strings to back up the following solo improvisation of the flute.

This incredible piece, made in 1969, was almost lost into oblivion, until it was later rediscovered by rapper J Cole and incorporated into his wildly popular song “Power Trip”. In fact, if it wasn’t for this song, I would never have found this work of art. Thank you HipHop samples.
