Bill Cosby & Quincy Jones – Hikky Burr

26 Mar

This song was recorded by Bill Cosby and Quincy Jones in 1969 as the theme song for The Bill Cosby Show. This song is so funky, thanks to the loose kind of playing. It sounds like everybody is just jamming and having a good time. Note the amazing saxophone lines and the awesome bass playing by Carol Kaye (amazing female bass player, played on classics like ‘Good Vibrations’ by the Beach Boys, ‘River Deep – Mountain High’ by Ike & Tina and a lot of Simon & Garfunkel songs).
