Alright people, today we got a real sweet jam for ya: Hikky Burr by Bill Cosby. Yes, that Bill Cosby. In 1969 he hooked up with ubiquitous producer Quincy Jones and a number of jazz sidemen (including Modern Jazz Quartet and Thelonius Monk vibraphonist Milt Jackson!) to make this bit of inspired lunacy. Around my household shouts of “Hicky Burrrrr, uh hikky, hikky brrrr!” are spontaneously exchanged like a secret handshake. I’d say more about the song, but I’m pretty hungover today and really it’s kind of beyond words, know what I mean? Dig.
(Hat tip to Funky 16 Corners for this jam.)
