May // June - 2017
We're back with a few extra jams to make up for our recent absence. Your patience is much appreciated. Hope you enjoy this holiday weekend with these great tunes.
Chris Stapleton's new album is a must listen, even if you don't consider yourself a country fan. He definitely crosses over into the blues realm and perhaps what I like most about his music is how the mix can put you in a smokey roadhouse saloon. Close your eyes and sip a Coors Original.
Richard Spaven makes fantastic drumming look way too easy. Give his new single with Jordan Rakei's smooth vocals a listen.
Bahia, a northeastern Brazilian state, is one of the more interesting places I've had the pleasure of exploring. It's like the Louisiana of Brazil - rich and unique music, cuisine, & culture meets poverty and colonial legacy. It's a fascinating place with some of the most amazing people I've ever met. It's safe to say I'm often dreamin' of Bahia which is partly why I put Karriem Riggins' track on the list. The other part is it's a catchy groove that he so deftly performs in both hip-hop and jazz formats somehow in under 3 minutes. Delightful.
Vince Staples has a new album out and word on the street is it's a bit out there. Squabble up with the Big Fish.
Enjoy 58 minutes of good music.
