#003 – Gap MangioneDiana in the Autumn Wind‘ Label: GRC Year: 1968

“This rare and hard to find jazz album is a special one due to the fact that so many have sampled this amazing record including one of greatest hip-hop producer, J Dilla of Slum Village for the hip-hop iconic joint Fall In Love. Although most might argue that “Diana In The Autumn Wind’ is everyone’s favorite, but mine would be the 1st track ‘Boys With Toys” The intro with the horns are super wicked therefore, making this a sleeper in my opinion. Overall, the album is super solid from start to end. Highly, reccommend if you can find this record. A rarity & must have for all record collectors!”
