Essence All Stars – Casablanca

Digital Crate Digging Continues on a Flashback Friday; corporate sponsors will call this a Black Friday…

…after Thanksgiving Day business, so were thanks given or requests for forgiveness? so how will my people play?

By now y’all should know how this black man will play, business is conducted in a breakbeat  scientific fashion…

By now y’all should know how this black man will let the music play, usually in an orderly fashion..

Out of order? going against the grain clashing with the apparatus like I was in the movie Casablanca like Humphrey Bogart..

Out by the border where they’re trying to build a wall, so what’s up y’all? we’re trying to get over the hump, told a naysayer don’t even start?

Out of order because I’m soul jazzing, listening to Essence All Stars with a track called Casablanca?

Your dude / boy is just chilling at the moment!! check out the players and the track, it’s like we’re at the jazz club over in Morocco,  in Casablanca!!

Eric Gale – Sara Smile

Sunday Jazz Continues!! check us out as a little digital crate digging will be involved…

The saga / struggle continues, can you dig it? during the ongoing process we jumped to the the conclusion that it’s rough out here, but we evolved..

The saga / struggle continues,  threw some salve on the wounds and kept it moving / grooving..

Chilling out on this Sunday evening after coming out odd and even in the ongoing crap game; life is a gamble,  winning and losing..

Shady dealing out here in Babylon? oh yes, once again it’s on!! we rebuke it with this sound!! listening to Eric Gale with his version of the the Hall and Oates track Sara Smile..

They’re killing it!! check out the all star players he has rolling with him and the track; they’ve got a reggae twist to it, but something tells me it’ll make you smile!!

Gabor Szabo Feat. Bob James – Ziggidy Zag

Digital Crate Digging Continues on a Music Monday; we were O-Dog Day Partying earlier..

Now moving in another direction per our pursuit of beat perfection; we’ve got work to do…

Mentioned doing the math, but no unnecessary digging like William Barr concerning the so called “spying” on the Trump campaign..

Mentioned the aftermath; hindsight is 20 / 20; bid rigging raising the bar? we’re just plying our trade; blue collar with it!! beats will bump and O-Zone will maintain..

Still on the warpath, moving straight ahead!! zig zagging like Joe Bidenconcerning abortion? naw!! we’re not acting brand new in the sport son!!

Listening to Gabor Szabo Feat. Bob James with  Ziggidy Zag; sliding down I-20 in Atlanta!! check the players and the track!  smooth / chillout version of O-Dog Day Partying!! we’re lounging son!!

Dropping this good word and the sound, as we get down!! who said I won’t razz in a hater in the process?

Not stopping, we’ll keep it moving, asking who’s really down? some relate, from the ATL to Nassau in the Bahamas some see they naysayers haven’t stopped the madness!!
