The Other Duke…George Duke

The Other Duke…George Duke   Our most recent Duke, George, left us Monday August 5th 2013 and with his passing a gap in sound has been created. I’d like to send my deepest condolences to those who knew and loved him best. I know I miss him. That man over there on the right played…

Music Radio…

Music Radio… Seems to be so commercialized. You get a few good songs mixed in with a stretch of music that you hear over and over and over again peppered with the same commercials. That was how I felt when I first started this station years back. Adding to that was the fact that I…

Where you hear…

You New Yorkers out there remember back in the day when WBLS used to have Frankie Crocker do the station call letters in that booming echoing voice? “WBLS…The Total Black Experience In Sound Where You Hear…” Then in full blown stereo he’d rattle off like 400 artists names for what seemed like 20 minutes listing…

Tha’ Jazzzz….

Rest in Peace Nick Ashford

Dear Valerie, To you and the family our deepest regrets. Words can’t even begin to express… Thanks to you both, the lessons of your music made me aware of some of the things I deserve in life…. Nick Ashford and Valerie Simpson are definitely a pair of the “unsung” who’ve crafted hits for a number…

So, about the music playing now…

Now to answer a few questions….

No you won’t find that version of “Skin I’m In” anywhere else. Sorry!
Nope, that Tony Toni Tone remix if “Feels Good” will only be played here.
I dunno why I mixed Parliament’s “Night of the Thumpasaurus Peoples” with the Masters At Work mix of Rain/Give It Up (A Lil Louis Painting). It just felt right.
Yes that mix of Raze’s “Break For Love” into DJ Languages “Close To You” does seem very visual in an aural sense. Hahaha!! Uhuh! That’s what I saw in my mind’s eye as it played too!
I dunno. Let me know…in the meantime sign up as a VIP and lose the commercial breaks.

G’bye Phoebe Snow…

Her’s was a voice that was in that class where Minnie played.
Nooo… one could never be mistaken for the other. They do not sound the same… One was just as pure as the other.. each as rare…just as unique. When you heard Minnie, you knew it. You didn’t have to think about it. You simply knew it from the inside out.
That’s also how Phoebe hits you too. Once you hear her voice, next time there’s no mistaking. It can be gutsy one second and blasting through four octaves the next. Recognition comes subconsciously.
And, you will smile.

Another Goodbye…

Abbey Lincoln via last.fm Even though its inevitable… Still seems unacceptable. Abbey Lincoln has passed on today in New York. She turned 80 barely a week ago. It’s reported that she was in failing health and was in a nursing home. Many will say that Jazz lost a legend. I think its bigger than that.…
