Giacomo Gates: The Revolution Will Be Jazz - The Songs of Gil Scott-Heron

The ever-witty vocalist Giacomo Gates is usually compared to Eddie Jefferson or Jon Hendricks when it comes to style. If not those artists, he's compared to instrumentalists due to his mastery of Vocalese. That being said, I'm sure you're wondering how the art of the late Gil Scott-Heron can even be associated with Gates.
