My dude down on Bay Street down in Nassau in the Bahamas said jokers haven’t stopped the madness so I guess I’ll have back with this…

…soul food / Sunday meal, it’ll be something they can feel; my constituents already know what it is when we “holla back with this”

Donald Byrd – The Little Rasti (Full Length)

Digital Crate Digging Continues, we’re check us out we’re Afternoon Jazzing….

In a jazz funk mood, feeding my people this soul food so they’re not out here spazzing!!

We’re not out here razzing  jokers like comedians we’re Sonic Assaulting  those impeding progress..

While down in Nassau / Bahamas I was consulting with the brotha; we came to an agreement, jokers haven’t stopped the madness!

But we’re back with this, checking out this classic track from Donald Byrd called The Little Rasti….jazz / funk at its finest!! the players on this masterpiece?

The Crusaders – Running Man

Digital Crate Digging Continues; check us out as we get this Music Monday segment underway..

The saga / struggle continues aka life goes on / toil and strife goes on; our response? we’ll drop this good word plus we’ll let the music play!!

Of course!! this is how we’ll play it on a rainy cloudy Monday morning; weather forecasters sun they Sun will be out later.

Similar to the smoke cleared after the smoke and mirrors? please!! like the Trump insurrection horrors and terrors were implemented by a hater..

Jokers loathed / feared during Mercury retrograde but it’s over we’re moving forward in the shadow period; might as well say we’re Shadow Boxing..

O-Dog steered the mothership ro a safe haven / safe harbor; he kept on running man / he kept on rocking!!

Music Monday? this track by The Crusaders called Running Man is what we’re rocking!! we’re in a Sunday Jazz mood!!

Check out the players and the track as we “holla back”; we’re not trying to spaz we’re chilling out so how are you feeling / what’s good?

 

The Crusaders – Little Things Mean A Lot

Sunday Jazz err wait a minute; I meant Digital Crate Digging Continues check these menus on this Monday Morning…

Son! Daughter! spazzing was an option but I’m just chilling ignoring the hate in these venues, jokers are “buking / mocking / scorning” 

Like in 2 Chronicles 36:16, I see how they’re plotting / scheming they’ll even attempt a coup like Trump..

This I-20 Chronicle derivative will let you know what the deal is with it / the scheme – plot  as we drop this good word and beats will bump..

Check the response to this and that, chilling listening to this smooth track from The Crusaders called the  Little Things Mean A Lot..

Check the response to this and that, check out the players and the track!! we’re just chilling at the moment, trying to smooth things out!!

 

The Crusaders- Pessimisticism

Sunday Jazz Continues!! check us out, we’re trying to put it down like it’s heavy…

The saga / struggle continues!! checked the vibe, spirits were broken plus hearts were heavy…

What it do? I even tried to dip down Memorial Drive in Decatur in the Chevy Malibu but was hit by a broken down / old school Toyota Corolla!!

Fast forward to today? another way is how I play, the game wasn’t over..

Especially when the brotha prays, sending them up as blessings fall down; that’s the lesson learned!

Now a brotha plays this nice jazz track from the Crusaders called Pessimisticism; relating to pessimism? that’s not how we’re living! check the players and the track as these lessons are still learned!

Check this out at The Crusaders- Pessimisticism

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”
