Late Pass #11: King Kooba – Foolin’ Myself

June 15, 2009

I’d heard Melissa Heathcote before on King Kooba’s 1999 Enter the Throne Room (Koobesq). Although I enjoyed that tune, it wasn’t until 2000’s Om Lounge 4 that I fell in love with her. The tune is Fooling Myself, a swinging bossa with her ethereal vocals on top and an intoxicating horn throughout. This song was a gateway for me to enjoy artists like Koop and Loopless plus it encouraged me to pick up King Kooba’s 2007 Indian Summer which included some really nice gems plus another appearance by Melissa, scatting on Honey Locust.
