I was listening to the amazing In A Silent Way from Miles Davis (which will be featured on this playlist soon) and was thinking about the whole instrumental horn, jazz, blues, thing and then Battle Mountain appeared in my Inbox.

It was sent from the amazing team at A Song A Day and if you love music I highly recommend that you check them out.  Shannon and her fellow curators do a brilliant job of sourcing great new music that you've never heard of and the more people that support and talk about them - the better of the world will be!  

Battle Mountain is a track that comes with plenty of energy - which is often missing in many essay writing playlists - but you can't help get motivated by the killer opening percussion - by the time the sax arrives you're in and focused!
