Artist: Dontae Winslow + Winslow Dynasty feat. Questlove
Song: "Summer Cookout"
Album: Enter The Dynasty

"'Summer Cookout' was an amazing opportunity for me to explore the more soulful roots of jazz and its gospel/quartet roots," Dontae Winslow tells Rolling Stone. "I love the trumpet going through a Hendrix style wahwah pedal for the main melody, because it catches the listener off guard. Questlove recorded the drums at his studio with his unique tuning and sounds that only he gets from a kit with a huge bass kick drum. 'Summer Cookout' for me is the jam the you'd put on in my hometown in Baltimore when the crabcakes would come out. It's a date with food, summer fun, and a girl you like!"
