Pino Palladino and Blake Mills are two of the most dynamic studio wizards in music and they join us this week on Transmissions to discuss Notes With Attachments, their Impulse! Records-released collaborative long-player. Known for their individual collaborations with artists like Bob Dylan, D’Angelo, The Who, Fiona Apple, and Brittany Howard, these two go completely unexpected places as they unite for a set of jazzy instruments that blur the lines between J. Dilla flips, Cuban shuffles, and West African lock grooves.
The first taste from bassist Pino Palladino and guitarist/producer Blake Mills’ Notes With Attachments swirls with careful band interplay, treated saxophone and lush harmonics. It’s the sort of song you’re tempted to start over before it even finishes.
