Lost but not least! Martin East Project feat. Lisa Donnelly – Wisdom Of A Million Years (A&M Chill Bootleg Mix)
‘Wisdom Of A Million Years…’ Like it or not, wisdom is per definition nothing you would get get from a single click. Hopefully, we haven’t yet got that option. Meaning that there are still things we only get along with time. Like the know how for instance. And I feel quite comfortable with this as a matter of fact.
Givin’ a listen to ‘Wisdom A Million Years’ and you know. You know you’re in front of something special. Nothing of a surprise though when referring to Martin East. A man who has crafted incredible pieces of music in the past. At the crossroad between Chill Out and (Deep) House. Such as the vibrant ‘Wisdom A Million Years’. A masterpiece that saw him teaming up back in 2011 along with Bay Area-based Folk singer/songwriter and guitarist Lisa Donnelly. Both of them reachin’ rare heights on this acoustic sounding gem as delivered by Martin East on his Organic Mix. And eventually given a further development / edit on Roberto Albini and Sara Muratore‘s A&M Chill Bootleg unofficial rendition…
The sadly underrated ‘Wisdom Of A Million Years’ is nevertheless of the most beautiful (love) songs of all time. Besides, it would definitely have found some space in our 10 essential of the year back then if ever our site had been operational at the time.

Then Martin East came to collaborate once again with Jared Douglas on the blowin’ bass-driven ‘Making Memories’.
