Apologies if it's been asked but ...,

I think I started out on this forum by asking a question so it seems only fair to continue in the same vein.

I apologise if it's already been asked but I've too many post's to 'catch up' with.

Anyway, it's about 'Same Love' by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis on 'The Heist'

Can someone tell me if the piano playing sampled from something if so what ..., it sure sounds familiar and I really like it, intact I like the whole album ... not sure if I can provide a link but I'll try. http://open.spotify.com/track/01uqI4H13Gsd8Lyl1EYd8H

Yes. Very familiar.....but from where? It sounds gospelly, a cousin of "People Get Ready". As to the original, if there is one, I've no idea. It may even have been knocked out by a studio session musician - uncommon, I'm sure, but still a possibility. Can you check writer credits?

In a similar vein of piano gospel, there's a couple of album by Hank Jones & Charlie Haden that hit the spot in a similar way. You'll know this one, I'm sure

Thanks Norman, I like that, deep sound on a piano and the bass (damn that sounds like Greg Wallace commenting on Masterchef) as to the tune ... yes all us Northern Boy's know it's 'Hovis' ..... which reminds me, what's the difference between an alsatian dog and a slice of hovis? ..... they are both different types of breed.... okay, I'll get my coat.

Seems to be based on 'People Get Ready', but not a sample - "piano by Josh Rawlings"

Thanks John for that link.

A while ago I heard "waiting on the world to change' by John Mayer and at the time I listened to it quite a lot, perhaps this has 'clouded' my memory a wee bit ... still, the truth will out.

Thanks for this Norman, I hadn't realised that they had done more than the one album together. Lovely stuff...
