Danny!’s “Don’t Remind Me” is the way I want to start my Friday. I spent my final hour last night playing this joint on loop and decided to come back to it to start the day. As a tribute piece, Danny!’s version sticks closely to Patrice Rushen’s 1982 original so it’s comfortable to listen to. But, he tweaks it just enough – giving it a sort of Dillaesque vibe – so it sounds fresh and new.
Just a good place to start to put your mind at ease on a Friday morning.
