Sunday Jazz Continues!! the saga / struggle continues!! this dude had to respond some type of way..

Jazz / funk / soul / hip hop / house music? they’re all on these menus? my response? let the music play!!

Earlier? I mentioned how radio stations featured jazz programming on Sunday so the tribes could get their minds right!!

Even rock and soul music stations rose to these occasions!! excuse the Throwback Thursday / Flashback Friday behavior when I drop these hindsights!!

O-Dog will rock!! he’s shining the light on  The Temptations with Papa Was A Rolling Stone (UNRELEASED TOM MOULTON MIX)

It’s not jazz? man please, listen to the music!! it’s soul jazz!!  groups during that time period used jazz instrumentation!! now check this implementation as we get breakbeat scientific..
