"I have decided to stick with love, hate is too great a burden to bear." -Martin Luther King Jr.
January 15th, a great man with a greater love was born. Focused, he lived with a purpose burning within him and a determination to fulfill his destiny. He had a dream.
Unselfish, he gave his life knowing that it would propel and further that dream. "Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends". What manner of man was this? This mix recognizes the strength, courage, committment and the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr through spoken word, sound clips and song. When you listen, listen with an open mind and an open heart. During this mix, try to walk a few steps with Dr. King and recognize how he's touched your life. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr...thank you! The dream continues.........
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 finished product was moved as well.
Special thanks to Eric Essix, a Birmingham Alabama native who allowed me use of his tune.Sounds Of The Season

Cloudy and wet, certainly a mood changer from the previous summer day, one of clear skies and sunshine. Rain can be a mood changer and as the light rains fell upon us all day, rather than darken my mood, it provided the perfect ambience for this mix. It was a summer storm that brought with it subtle claps of thunder and just enough flashes of lightning to separate the grey clouds from the red evening sky.
This all got me to thinking about nostalgia...old times, old friends and old school music. Reminiscing about life and the good ol' days. These are just the kind of days that lend itself to that.
This music set incorporates the finest artists in jazz with some pretty cool interpretation of the classic tunes. You'll recognize them I'm sure.
Good weather...the term is relative.

Smooth melodies create the atmosphere and thought-provoking lyrics take it all to the next level. One of the true mysteries of love is its simplicity. When you think about it, it really bends the mind. But when love embraces you, hold on and never let go. True beauty also shares that same simplicity, like the beauty of a single white rose. Love...it's what the world needs now. May this mix find you in the best of love and simplicity. XOX Reggie TheJazzman
