    What a stupidly swingin song. The bassline is sooooooooooo bouncy and bottom-heavy. Who's on bass? Chuck Rainey? Just wondering.

    No wonder it's used in commercials and sampled by hip hop artists.

    Oops. I should have put this under recordings. The admins can make the appropriate change. Peace.

    I don't know who played bass on the track, but it was written and sung by Ja'net DuBois. She was the woman who played "Wilona" on the TV series Good Times.

    Sounds Rainey-esque.
    Nice little double stop thrown in there...

    Did Dave Grusin pen this theme song?
