Idris Muhammad – Don’t Fight The Feeling

Sunday Jazz Continues on a hot Sunday afternoon, but this science dropped is good for any time period…

The saga / struggle continues aka life goes on / toil and strife goes on; moving forwards never backwards, we don’t fear it..

The Mothership? we’ll steer it in the right direction per God’s will; some think it’s odd when a dude chills and let God do his work…

A brotha gets breakbeat scientific but don;t get me wrong!! this is not Mamby Pamby Land no need for the GEICO Sarge;  it’s rough out dealing with these twin pandemics’ “y’all know how it works”

Covid -19 and systemic racism during this Gemini season, it’s the season of those twins at least for another week..

Going on with it, casing the joint looking for a portal to slide throughknowing how the sport will do; for some the outlook is bleak…

Reality will wreak havoc but we didn’t abort our mission, we took Idris Muhammad’s advcie; we  Don’t Fight The Feeling

Doing the mathematics and dropping this sound is how we’ll get down; check out the players and this disco jazz  / jazz funk track!!  this is how we’re dealing…

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”

Digital Crate Digging Continues per this Terrible / Terrific Tuesday where things can play out either way…

Praying for the terrific outcome, blessed by the manifestation , soon pulling out the drum for the celebration as we let the music play…

But this is no play thing, it’s serious; we’re out here trying to stay safe sheltering in place from this coronavirus..

Jokers we’re asking if there was a doctor in the house, please!! Dr Anthony Fauci tried to tell y’all what the deal is!!

Jokers played that  doubting Thomas role, seeing how Rand Paul andMitch McConnell roll with the shady business, they’re ignored as this breakbeat scientific business gets handled..

What’s up y’all? check the response y’all, O-Dog Day Partying!! listening to this disco jazz from Idris Muhammad with a track called  For Your Love (Special 12″ Disco Mix); check out the players and the track as this breakbeat scientific business gets handled..

Ronnie Laws – Solid Ground

Digital Crate Digging Continues on what I refer to as Terrible / Terrific Tuesday; things can flow in either direction…

Sometimes there’s a mixture of both; I proceed and continue after drinking the elixir or broth; now you might spot me in your section!!

Told you about dude from East Saint Louis that told me to choose my poison and keep it moving so sections from Saint Louis to Louisville to Cincinnati were visited; those are my old stomping grounds..

Check the attitude from a Midwest dude down south here in Atlanta, maybe some will understand a brotha dropping this good word and bumping sounds..

Check the attitude, blessed not stressed!! chilling out with this Afternoon Jazz so I won’t spaz!! Ronnie Laws with Solid Ground plays in the background

This is from his album of the same name, check the players and the track!!  meanwhile per the math / aftermath we won’t come with the same game; we won’t back down…

Opportunities blown? we’ll move on, even though we’re trying to keep the O-Dog Day Party vibe going…

Diplomatic immunity is exercised, it’s on!! astrologers mention the New Moon Eclipse on July 2nd; soon some of us will second that emotion!!

Rolling like Smokey Robinson and The Miracles while we provide the sound and these lyricals..
