Bobby Womack was one of the greatest to ever do it. When he went to glory on June 27, 2014, I was truly a sad camper. Womacks signature songs, That’s The Way I Feel About Cha”, “If You Think You’re Lonely Now”, “Harry Hippie” and “Across 110th Street” were the anthems of my teen age and early adult years. Back then singers were really singers, you could feel the power of their voice in every note and phrase.
Bobby Womack you will always be remembered and will live forever in song.
New Music from my buddy Edwin Williams from his soon to be released album ELECTRIC JAZZ MUSICIAN.
Edwin currently hails from Atlanta, he founded Groove Cafe ATL, which is a monthly jazz, inter-generational performing arts series featuring Atlanta area jazz musicians, singers and various performing artists.
On a personal note, dude is very knowledgeable about the music business and keeps me schooled on damn near any subject that deals with music or the business of music.
This is one of my favorite songs, I was searching on youtube and found this guy who call himself “the guitar guy”. I really liked his rendition of the song. He really seems to be enjoying himself and I see why, He’s killing it. 😎
I’m here to tell you that the Mothership Connection album was one of the greatest albums out during my College years. Every time I hear it all I can remember is the fine ass girls, the good times and getting drunk and telling lies with my buddies. Here are a few of the hot tracks I really liked. 🙂
This is my second time starting my Soul Blog. On my first go round I ran into a lot of artist with talent. MySpace was really big back then for artist. One of the most talented guys I ran into with a super soulful sound was Jonas Rendbo, back then he went by the name Jonas. Below is one his old videos. I’ll come back to this post and add a few more tomorrow, but this song “Melting into you” is sure enough Bad.
It’s from his album Sweet Dreams Guaranteed
Legendary music producer and songwriter Nile Rodgers visited Joe Causi at WCBS-FM in New York City for an in-depth interview to discuss everything from recent success with Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky”, to producing, composing and arranging hit dance records with Chic, Queen, David Bowie, Grace Jones, INXS, Madonna, Diana Ross and much more!
This was a great album, I never felt it got the attention it deserved. McKnight is usually known for his high falsetto voice. To keep it real that sound was starting to drive me nuts. With this album I thought he took it in another direction and got more down and gritty.
