Stix Hooper – Jasmine Breeze

Sunday Jazz Continues on a hot / humid  Sunday morning  here in Atlanta…

It’s a blessing to be here even though we’re in the midst of these twin pandemics; somebody will understand a brotha..

…as we deal with systematic racism and the coronavirus as  word to the so called was and continues to be ignored..

..as we deal with it; Pops warned me about the wise and otherwise back in the day, now bearing witness as those points are made / scored…

…as we deal with it / real with it; trying to chill with it taking Sunday morning walks trying to get some fresh air, maybe I can clear my head..

…as the slight breeze blows, catching the scent of this Stix Hooper  influenced Jasmine Breeze?  the melodies play out in my head ..

Sonic knowledge dropped by the great Crusaders drummer, he’s got a couple of those cats from the Crusaders “running with him”  on this project; check out the other players and the track..

Acknowledging the madness hasn’t stopped check the ongoing charades!! eased when the music is played! check the sound as we “holla back”

Next Level Business Is Conducted (Part Three)

The HumpDay Extravaganza is underway!! so what’s up with it? Next Level Business Is Conducted!!

Getting over the hump? that’s how we’ll play even though the the groove was disturbed!!  even when the System told jokers not to do it!!the  flow was interrupted

Beats will bump and this good word is dropped encouraging the people not to get caught up in the system / matrix; did the math / studied the statistics / on thin ice? some will skate..

Others said You’re In My System like the System, remixed by Kerri Chandler understand a brotha? next level business is conducted as these futuristic mystics noticed government and corporate officials would neither confirm nor deny allegations, especially if it concernsJeffrey Epstein’s Little Black Book!! some still hate!

Government officials still debate irrelevant issues!! some are petty like Devin Nunes while the other drama plays out like Boris Johnson vs the UK Parliament!! they’re  trying to show constituents they can turn their swagger on!

Same thing for modern day preachers;  little homie said its hard to reach us in the hood!!  at the neighborhood package stores? smokers walk back and forth like zombies and drunks get their stagger on!
