I Need A Dollar
by Aloe Blacc
(163 plays) | (0 fans)

Blacc got the idea for this song after listening to field recordings from the Smithsonian. Hearing these recordings of people singing their tales of woe, Blacc decided to write one of his own, and came up with the title "I Need A Dollar." To develop the lyrics, he asked friends to trade verses with him and then join him on the chorus. -https://bit.ly/2Ig7wU7

"Chicago drummer/producer Makaya McCraven reworks the late poet/musician’s final album (2010’s 'I’m New Here') with help from a strong supporting cast of Chicago musicians including Jeff Parker on guitar, Brandee Younger on harp, Junius Paul on bass and Ben Lamar Gay on multiple instruments. McCraven & co. provide a stronger, more deeply rooted jazz framework that blends beautifully with Scott-Heron's bluesy vocals and poetic lyrics of struggle, love, loss, family and mortality." - https://www.kexp.org/read/2020/2/10/new-music-reviews-210/
