"When I think of music, I think of music in totality"
While listening to Donny's concerto, I heard what sounded like phrasing from Someday We'll All Be Free. This seemed more than just coincidental, since I believe the concerto piece is from the same orchestra session which resulted in 'I Love The Lord'.
This led me to attempt to combine the two pieces seamlessly. Here is the result.
My theory is that it was initially Donny's intention for this piece to be used as the 'Extension of a Man' opener, but presumably the concept was so ambitious (and hard to publish/market) that the much shorter 'I Love The Lord' was used instead.
The fact that 'Zyxygy Concerto' leads into 'Someday We'll All Be Free' so perfectly seems to back this up... at least in my opinion. The two combined are utterly breathtaking.
Both tracks taken from 'Never My Love: The Anthology'. An essential purchase for any Donny Hathaway fan.
