  1. i was amazed to see you included “chappaqua (40winks remix)” and would be curious to learn how you picked up on it and whether you think the word “Chappaqua” has any particular meaning. does it refer to the 1966 film?


  2. hi howard – not sure if Chappaqua has any special meaning. i’m assuming it is just referring to the town. the song was included on a compilation from one of my favorite record labels, project mooncircle, based in berlin. i tried to research the original artist “brazzaville” but could not find anything on them.

    here’s the link to the compilation:

  3. “Chappaqua (40 Winks Remix)” is by the Belgian band Brazzaville, which produces an “exciting, adventurous and especially a FUNKY sound! The music is inspired by 70’s jazz & funk, afrobeat, rare grooves & simply life.”

    It was written by Vincent Brijs and recorded in 2008 on the band’s debut album, Days of Thunder, Days of Grace, which featured special guests Zap Mama, Mo, Grazz, and Zita Swoon’s Amel Serra. Days was named Best Belgian Jazz Album of the year, according Le Soir.

    “Chappaqua (40 Winks Remix)” can be downloaded in various formats and can be heard on YouTube on Mexican artist Graciela Maria’s album The Moon Comes Closer.
