Figure while I'm still up I could post something useful...

Art Ensemble of Chicago - Theme de Yoyo

From their 1970 (?) masterpiece Les Stances a Sophie and guest vocals performed by Fontella Bass. I'm not usually a fan of jazz with vocals (it breeds crap) but this is tremendous. The bassline is catchy, hypnotic, and there's enough crazy breakdown in there to dig a hole in your he-e-e-e-ead.
