I first heard this when I was walking through my college’s campus center. A student jazz group called the Hot Sextet (ha, ha) was playing in the lounge area, and the melody stopped me in my tracks.

I first heard this track from Bonobo’s Late Nite Tales and am like whaaaaaat? Nina Simone did Reggae. Well she didn’t just do reggae she wrote an anthem to define the dark streets corroding to urban decay and post-industrial cities with wheels falling off the Wagon.
