Lamont Johnson – Calypso After Nine

Sunday Jazz Continues; we’re chilling out on a hot Sunday evening in Atlanta..

…just trying to get our minds right dropping this sound plus this insight; somebody will understand a brotha!!

Still sheltering in place, not trying to get caught out there like Herman Cain may he rest in peace; per Bernell Trammell I mentioned some are playing for the wrong team earlier..

…plus others still try to use race to bait their base like Laura Ingraham but I heard my constituents are in pain, so we’re just trying to jam, we’ve got other work to do!!

We’re checking out some soul jazz /  jazz funk from  Lamont Johnson – with a track called Calypso After Nine. 

Check out the players and the track as we drop this from the East Coast / Eastern Standard Time, after nine..
