What a prolific career this man had. We could all only hope to live 1/10 of a life he did. May the light continue to shine his path forward.

It's beautiful, and sounds much better on vinyl than what you hear on youtube. Gorgeously lush.

I can only imagine how deep this must sound on vinyl. Youtube is a woefully inadequate way to consume music, yet without it I never would have heard this amazing track, so I shouldn't complain too hard :lol:

I discovered this shortly after Tony's death while browsing through some of his music. It's a very interesting mix of Afrobeat and electronic music.

It's cool that he was so open to playing music with such a wide cast of characters.
