As soon as I heard M.O.P.’s “Blow The Horns”  I went “son-of-a-bitch!” I’m a huge fan of Bob James and the break in question is from James’ cover of George Bizet’s “Farandole (L’Arlesienne Suite #2)”

It originally appeared on Bob James’ Two, made famous for “Take Me To The Mardis Gras,” but I’ve been listening to it from Restoration, his best-of double-disc.

Take a listen below (the horns come in at around 19 seconds.)

And this is the original that James made over…

I even sampled this song for a beat and completely went over the horns, instead going to the funky wa-wa guitar and ethereal intro. Props to Fizzy Womack.
