Somewhere In Alabama (Eric Essix feat. Martin Luther King Jr. - RTJ Edit)
January 19, 2015 02:21 AM PST
itunes pic

While i was looking through my catalog for songs and song titles relevant to Martin Luther King Jr., I thought about the deep south where many of his battles were fought. Of course, three key cities involved in the civil rights movement were Selma, Montgomery and Birmingham. Along with marches and non-violent protests, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered some of his most memorable speeches in these locations. When I saw Eric's title 'Somewhere In Alabama', I was curious so I listened and instantly knew this was the song that I was searching for. Soulful, emotional and raw.

Having familiarized myself with many of Martin's speeches, all that was left was to find a message that was moving, powerful and fitting. Eric's guitar work and lead in laid the foundation for Martin's delivery and as the song transitions, I carefully positioned Martin's prophetic speech.

After listening to the final mix several times, I was left with an overwhelming feeling of awe of what's been accomplished and how far we still have to go. Eric after hearing the finsihed product was moved as well.

Special thanks to Eric Essix, a Birmingham Alabam native who allowed me use of his tune.

A Smokin' Jazz Christmas 2014

It's hard to reinvent Christmas every year since the very nature of the holiday is tradition (if it ain't broke, don't fix it). Sure, the songs are classic and timeless, we've been listening to them since our childhood and they have sentimental value.

My nature requires that I spend a fair amount of time outside the box, thus this mix. Taking the familiar and combining it with some unfamiliar keeps things interesting, and then slammin' it all together 'in the mix' takes it up a notch. Kinda like seeing the wrapped beautifully wrapped gift....anticipation building of what's inside.

Well, wait no longer...press PLAY!
MERRY CHRISTMAS and ENJOY THE MIX!

This gospel mix takes you to church from start to finish. This is the prelude to Sunday's Gospel Brunch The 'REAL' Soul Food and the inspiration for that series. Modeled after a Sunday morning church service, the only thing missing here is the collection plate. I've mixed quite a few but this one, for me, is still THE ONE.

God's Blessings To You!
ENJOY!!

Technology.....sometime it gets the best of us and it seems like its always the wrong time. While trying to get this show completed I lost my ability to record my vocals so missing on this show is quite a few of my qups but I managed to get a few in there. Usually I announce the artists/songs that you here but you'll have to check the playlist to get that info.

Now, I've got some troubleshooting to do. In the meantime, ENJOY THE SHOW!!
