Lalo Schifrin ‎– Baia

Digital Crate Digging Continues per my Music Monday format; my constituents encouraged us, we were told to “go on with that”

…not in a negative form or fashion they told us to keep jamming!! they said yeah!! do that!!

Acting like we knew that and this !! bumping heads with the thought and fashion police because jokers keep changing the rules or even ignoring them..

Acting like we do? dropping this good word with beats that are bumping!! going off like it’s the NBA Summer League; points? we’re scoring them!!

Earlier? housing them and even hip hopping them; my jazz funk lovers? we’re not ignoring them!!

O-Dog Day Partying!! plus arousing them and those!! listening to composer’s Lalo Schifrin track called Baia!! whatcha know about him?

This is off he soundtrack from the movie Black Widow; check the players and funky track..

Perfect for this Music Monday or any day!! as we bring it back..
