Known previously for his tenure behind R&B legend Ray Charles, trumpeter Billy Brooks proved himself an uncommonly skilled practitioner of jazz-funk with his solo debut Windows of the Mind. Forty Days later sampled to potent effect by A Tribe Called Quest remains a textbook example of the form, combining Brooks' sun-kissed lead performance with a jigsaw rhythm that's as persuasive as they come.
