February 2013

David Bowie - Rebel Rebel (US Single Version)

Donald Byrd - Ghana

Frank Minion - Watermelon // Introduction to Black Opium Street: Bongo Blues
I have been looking for Frank Minion's one album, The Soft Land of Make Believe forever and have finally resorted to ripping whatever crumbs are available on YouTube. The album is notable for featuring vocalese versions of Miles Davis' So What, Flamenco Sketches and All Blues and employing the Bill Evans Trio, fresh from working on Kind of Blue, to do so.

Hipnotic - Are You Lonely

James Blake - Retrograde

Joe Cuba Sextet - Pruebalo, OK?

Karen Dalton - Reason to Believe

Letta Mbulu - Mahlalela

Little Miss Cornshucks - Try A Little Tenderness

Margo's Kool Out Crew - Death Rap

Pamoja - Oooh, Baby

Family Of Percussion & Archie Shepp - Here Comes The Family
Archie Shepp was frequently outspoken in pointing out that jazz was moving to the white community, shirking its relevance to its culture and leaving the black youth behind—all the while insisting that "jazz" itself was an antiquated notion, that his responsibility was to the creation of a "black art music" with no limits to its sophistication and abstraction.

Prince Buster - Whine & Grine

Sweet Tea (The Black Angels & Heartless Bastards) - After Laughter (Comes Tears)

Twink - Fluid

And one more song I can't find any information on.


Prince on the Muppet Show:

A little girl hears Bad Brains for the first time:
