Blazo – Colors of Jazz (2011)
The 49ers are featured on Blazo’s album called Colors of Jazz. The song is called “Dock Ellis” and talks about being addicted to music, which I’m sure many of us can relate to. Can you remember a day that passed without listening to music? I can’t. For those sports fans, we chose the name because Dock Ellis was a professional baseball player who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1970. He pitched a no hitter against the San Diego Padres, but what made this no hitter special was that he later admitted to being on LSD during the game. Now that’s serious! It’s reported that he thought he had the day off and found out last minute that he was the starting pitcher that night.
Colors of Jazz is mostly a Jazzy instrumental album, which only features The 49ers vocally. We actually recorded this track to a different beat, and Blazo being the great producer that he is, ended up making a couple remixes and choosing which one he liked best for the album. Maybe the original will surface sometime in the future. Make sure you pick up the album and just zone out to some great music!
