Throwin' Down (In The Mix With Reggie TheJazzman)

Today, I just had to bring this mix back....it's full of bass and some funk.

One of the great bassists, Victor Bailey passed on today at the young age of 56 and I can see him, feel him and HEAR him still thumpin his bass, the latest addition to the heavenly orchestra.

Victor fought the good fight, doing his best to stay in this realm with us but God and life had the last say. His body was afflicted with a disease that slowly caused him to lose control of his muscles, a condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. He'd been battling this for over 25 years.

This is funky which is how I'm going to remember Vic..
You'll be missed

The Sound Of Retro

As I move through my early 50's, I recognize more and more samples of music from back in the day. This helps to keep the music from my era alive and well and is a constant reminder that that music was made to stand the test of time. Its refreshing to see the new school/old school connection.

I just love the sound of R&B and neo-soul. Cats like Raphael Saadiq, Babyface and Rahsaan Patterson making sure I get fed regularly. Of course when you put together a set that has some old and new, it's the sound that ties it all together. This set is a musical bridge and weaves just that type of pattern. If you like that type of music then you'll enjoy.

I'm not going to spoil it by listing the artists/songs. If you know your music, you're right in there. There's always a surprise or two when you turn me loose and of course, the mixes have to flow like butter.

I spun this one for SsassyRadio about five or six weeks ago and in case you missed it here it is for your listening pleasure. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Dare To Dream, A Celebration Of the Life Of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

"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 influenced your life and touched the world. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr...thank you! The dream continues.........

President Barack Obama is part of the dream fulfilled. After having served two terms, many of us are sad to see him go. Undeniably, we're privileged. We've lived and been a part of history, part of THE DREAM. Certainly, to say the least, Martin would have been proud and I'm sure, from his heavenly home, his light brightly shines.


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.

After The Rain

The rain....
It was one of those days....again

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.
Go ahead....let it rain.
