Isaac Hayes Rest in Peace

I heard the sad news over the weekend that ISAAC HAYES had passed away at the age of 65. The man who brought us "Ike's Mood", "Theme from Shaft" and "The Breakthrough", and gave us a million laughs as the Chef in the cartoon SOUTH PARK will be sorely missed.
Sample-wise there are so many artists that used ISAAC's music, particularly "Ike's Mood" which has to be one of the mellowest piano riffs on record.


...and here is BIZ MARKIE using the piano loop from IKE's MOOD, on "Make the Music With Your Mouth" from '87.
