Listening to: the Neville Brothers "Yellow Moon". Summer!

Neville Brothers: Yellow MoonIf ever a song contained the essence of a summer night, this is it. What a gorgeous, mind-swirling concoction this "Yellow Moon" is.

There is no part of this track that isn't delicious; from the perfect combinations (plural) of timbres and intertwining rhythms to the luxuriously spacious production.

This is the second track on an album of the same name. I'm reaching all the way back to 1989 for this, but there is no part of Yellow Moon, song or full album, that isn't fresh and exquisite.

If you don't have this one in your stash: you can sample the track or download the album here. or order the CD here.
