These podcasts I find myself coming back time and time again, laid back, relaxing podcast. I guess this past week has been long one and I was hoping to publish this podcast last week but time got away from me. This podcast was a little long for me as well (close to 90 minutes). I’m going to get back to having just an hour a little over.

Heather’s Song by Andy McKee remind me of a autumn day and for me Autumn is a time for new beginnings. Just sitting here listening to this song brings a smile to my face and my love more and more for artists who has the gift to make the acoustic guitar shine in a world where electronic samples dominates the music airwaves. I hope one day to see this gentleman in concert.

If you have been following my blog you know I am a huge fan of Special EFX. This is one group I wish I would have had a chance to see live. The late George Jinda still blows me away whenever I hear perform on their tracks. “The Lady and the Sea” is a very mellow/laid back track that makes me miss the 80s when it comes to their music and the 90s when I finally began realizing that I wasn’t going back to my old neighborhood.

Rick Peller’s “Consolation” from the Windham Hill Piano Sampler is beautiful and yet makes you reflect at the same time. Sometimes hearing compositions like this can make me break down and cry because for me it forces me to think about everything I have went through growing up…the loneliness, the crushes I had on young ladies that in the end never gave me a second look but for some reason made me keep moving forward because deep down I knew God had a plan for me.

Toni Childs‘ “Walk and Talk Like Angels” is one of those tunes that brings an image of a young, beautiful, innocent lady with a long Autumn Dress that is on a swing. This was a song that brings to mind wholesome, quality companionship because in the rush, rush world it’s good to just slow down.

The music from Mark Isham has been memorizing/haunting/surreal and “Honeymoon Nights” is no exception. I love and respect trumpet players and when you can blend acoustic and electronic with a hint ambient that is really cool. From his self-titled LP every track to me is a journey of making you take time and soak in every track.

You can not tell me that Strawberry Letter 23 by the Brothers Johnson does not make you lean back in a chair and just “chill”. Two thing I truly realize now…Louis Johnson is a heck of a bassist and Lee Ritenour made that guitar solo bumped this track up to another level.

Back in the late 80s I work as a overnight janitor cleaning Target stores and I came across this compilation LP from the Narada label, and the song “Trail of Tears” by Peter Buffett made me feel when the Native Americans were forced to relocate. For me, it lets me know that America is still paying for that horrible mistake.

To me, Level 42 never received the respect here in the states for their gift of not only nice music arrangements but song writing. Mark King, Mark Lindup and the Gould Brothers. Standing in the Light has some great tunes on the LP and “People” is a very soft but truth telling song with lead vocals by keyboardist Mark Lindup.

Growing up in church I was turned off by some of the songs I heard because to me they seemed so…depressing. Years later I began hearing songs by BeBe & CeCe, The Newsboys, Kirk Franklin. This let me know that it was cool to have upbeat music arrangements and still respect God. I find myself following Christians songs and this track “Day by Day” by Point of Grace is pretty cool and makes me truly thank my Lord and Savior every day for situations He has brought me through.

My favorite LP by John Mayer is “Heavier Things”. It’s a rarity for me to enjoy EVERY track on a vocal LP but this one I played over and over and I hooked my queen on his music. This is another guy that not only plays the guitar well but is a very smart/witty song writer. “Home Life” I think tells my life story and again takes me to a Autumn day (you see a pattern here with me when it comes to the Fall season…I can’t wait).

What can I say about this gifted pianist/keyboardist that the critics have not said about him. I have Fred Simon’s “Usually/Always” on cassette LP and the CD. This track “Time and the River” is only on the CD. Whenever I hear any of his tracks from this LP I think of a soundtrack. I know this song has never been in a movie but it makes me think “movie”. Produced by well known acoustic bassist Steve Rodby I’m glad I held on to the cassette LP close to 15 years.

When hearing the “So” LP by Peter Gabriel for me the first thing I think of is the X-Files. His songs I think would fit perfect in that series (especially Seasons 1-5). “Mercy Street” is a song that I pictured in a novel and screenplay (which I never wrote). For me Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush has tracks that make me think of a grim futurist era that there once was hope then lost and trying to get back to that time of optimist again.

I hope to see Michael Manring in concert one day. This blessed bassist not only good when playing with an ensemble but I hear his solo concerts are something to check out as well. This bass solo track “Geometry” from his “Toward the Center of the Night” is really impressive. I have been following Michael Manring for a minute and I have to admit, I miss his days when he was at Windham Hill but time marches on and we can’t live in the past but thank God I have his earlier work to take me back to that time and place

Everybody know my love for Tanita Tikaram. I love her husky/sultry/haunting voice. Just about every track I hear from her I truly love and “The Way That I Want You” ranks up there for me as beautiful. I don’t know if she still performs but I have to work hard to get other LPs from her.

Some artists take me back to when I first moved over here to Missouri, when I was single this LP by Spyro Grya does that for me. “Point of View” to me is one of best work. I love the vibes sounds from Dave Samuels, the keyboard work of Tom Schuman and of course the sax work of Jay Beckenstein. “Riverwalk” is a very laid back, relaxing Sunday morning song to play while you’re having breakfast with that special someone.

Seal’s first LP was a very refreshing because for me it was very different and innovative because some of the songs blended together and Wendy and Lisa (from Prince) working on this project was really cool. Even though “Violet” is my favorite cut on this LP “Show Me” ranks up there for me as well. For me it’s really sad that many musicians in the UK truly love putting together quality music and I miss the Black bands here in the states. I love how string arrangements are arranged on this track.

One person I would love to sit in on and watch him work would be William Ackerman. The founder of Windham Hill records (who sold it in ’96 to Sony/BMG to get back to his roots of recording in a small setting) has this very beautiful song “Waiting”. With the help of Michael Manring, the late Chuck Greenberg(founder of the group Shadowfax) . This song will relax the most stressed out person because of the arrangements of the acoustic guitar/fretless bass/and the lyricon

Wrapping up this music set is a cool track from one of my favorite acoustic guitarist Earl Klugh. “Jamaica Farewell” from his “Late Night Guitar” LP is very soothing, full of warmth and makes me slump down in my chair with the sheer feeling of delightful feelings.

Some podcast you think they are not one of your best and then while listening to the playback you have to stand back and say, “ya know, that’s pretty good.” This podcast is more on the traditional side but I truly dig it because when you get out of “yourself” way and just do what you enjoy doing, you can not fail. The older I get the more I am appreciating the traditional jazz genre…for me you have no choice but to stop, listen, soak it in and just…be.

This podcast I think of as a “Jazz Brunch” recording. You’re kicked back relaxin’/chillin’ but you are boppin’ your head at the same time and it’s notes are just flowing through and hitting your core being and that is how music is suppose to affect you. Big shout outs to the women of this podcasting community and to women of the blogging world…keep doin’ what ya doing.

kick back, relax and enjoy.

here it is close to 3am and I’m recording ANOTHER podcast(this is what I get for falling asleep at 8pm…but it’s all good). I guess this is a blessing because I will be very busy starting this upcoming Monday until December because of working my jobs and school so it’s best I try and get as many podcasts under my belt. I love relaxing music because it makes me reflect, count my blessings, and appreciate that God has giving me the gift and drive to put these podcasts together.

Kick back and enjoy this 3rd installment of MyLoveForMusic:Twilight Volume 3.

This podcast is all over the place (in my eyes) but it’s a good thing. Couple of the tracks are kind of on the world music side but it’s all good. A couple tracks you may have heard from my earlier ThriftStoreGems podcast but I’m sure you will not mind as long as the tunes are nice.

Quick shout out to Nikki, Anjibee, Anewlis, Fave, Doug Fresh for really cool podcasts. Our sister in podcasting[Nikki] will be off grid for a minute due to her work schedule…your podcast will be missed.
I have a track in this podcast from Joe Sample/Lalah Hathway and a great tune from the late/great Al Wilson. ^_^ TGrundy put together a very nice podcast in honor of Mr. Wilson.

Enjoy the music and give me some feedback in reference to this podcast and some of my earlier podcast.

First and foremost I want to give a big shout out to my brother Macedonia for getting me straight when it comes to me doing my podcast shows. I have been feeling, well, sorry for myself and my brother in podcasting made me snap out of it and made me realize why I do what I do so thanx so much bruh.

This combination of music is kinda the same but kinda of different. I’m a laid back kind of dude but the first track is more uptempo than compared to the music I bring you. After the track by Al di Meola it jumps back down to the mellow/even tempo music that I bring you with my shows.

As always, kick back relax and enjoy…you deserve it.

::Don’t forget to check out the cats over at 4 Brothers Beats for some of the best throwback R&B and Soul music:: ^_^

This is a podcast I have wanted to put together for the longest and now it’s finally here. Special EFX has been one of my favorite duos for close to 20 years. I will admit up front this is the first of 3 podcast for this group because with the four cassette LPs I’m showcasing I love every cut on each of their LPs. I will be bringing you three tracks from “Slice of Life”, “Mystique”, “Double Feature”, and “Just Like Magic.

First hearing Chieli Minucci and the late George Jinda back in the late 80s defined my ears for Smooth Jazz/New Age/World Fusion music forever. I am so glad that Minucci is continuing the Special EFX group since the passing of George in 2001. I hope you enjoy the tracks as much as I had a great time putting this together.

Let me know what you think of the tunes. Email me at…

ThriftStoreGems: Special EFX vol. 2 in the works as we speak


I see I’m finding myself floating toward laid back tunes more and more. Well that’s a lie, I have always enjoyed laid back tunes. I smooth jazz, downtempo cuts takes me back to when I first moved back over here in Missouri, where I finally could be myself, rediscover me and what I loved about me.

This is my second set of collections of smooth jazz, laid back vocals, new age tunes that whenever I hear them I just want to just sit back, reflect and just me. I hope you enjoy the compositions I have found. Some from my library and others that are new to me as well.

So much is going on these days with me…school, TGrundy’sCupid Hunt” (I finally got my list down to the 12 track I want from 45). This should be pretty interesting getting a chance to have different netcast all on one day to share their taste of music. But for now lets concentrate on why you are here today which is another edition of MyLoveForMusic.

This set of music is kinda uptempo (just a little) but as always I have to bring you jazz, new age, electronic and this time a little bluegrass.

Big shout out to Todd Kelley, KB, and Macedonia for great mixes for me to study to this week and as I wrote earlier this week for helping me find my love for true hip-hop & instrumental flowing music.

Check out the music…kick the tires, take it for a test drive and as always,

Be Blessed, Be Safe,
& Have a Wonderful Weekend.

Many thanx to ejflavors for the space to showcase my choice of tunes

Another weekend has come and this weekend has brought snow our way here in St. Louis. Kinda snowed in yes…more time to look for ThriftStoreGems…oh yeah. Back when I first moved here to St. Louis there was a college station that played really good music. Smooth jazz, new age music and 3 of the 4 artists I’m showcasing I first there.

Full Swing was a group that in the mid and late 90s had that Manhattan Trasfers feel to it. The first track I heard from them was “2Good2Be4gotten”. It was something about their harmony that hooked me right off the back. 4 songs will be coming from the cassette LP, “In Full Swing”

Stanley Jordan is one of the guitarist where you hear him play, then he drops off the face of the earth and you ask, “Where the heck did he go?” He is not one of those tragic stories where he got hooked on drugs and fell from grace…no, he went to college, got his degree and is doing just fine. He owns a book and music store in Arizonia and I believe he has his master degree in Music Therapy. 3 tracks I will showcase from “Flying Home” cassette LP

Michael Deep was an artist I gravitated to because before him I got hooked on andreas vollenweider (he plays the acoustic/electric harp). While working at the now defunct The Nature Company stores we sold different music, mostly new age music and when I first heard Michael Deep’s cassette LP “Thru the Harp” I couldn’t believe the harp could be used in this way of music. Mostly electronic but still one of my favorite LPs because to listen to the tracks makes you unwind, close your eyes and just let your cares just leave your body. I will be showcasing 3 tracks from this LP.

I know I sould like an ol’ head but “back when VH1 was playing videos” they had this segment that use to come on Sunday mornings showcasing smooth jazz, bluegrass, soft rock videos and the first time I heard “The Captain of her Heart” and saw all of those beautiful women I was like, Oh My Gosh…I want to live there.” The group Double(http://tinyurl.com/2wad6c) from Switzerland was to me, again, a group was just known for their one hit but for me they were a smooth jazz duo. 3 Tracks from the “Blue” LP are in this music segment.

So kick back and enjoy my flashback with me will ya?
