Sitting in the Mixing Lab...had some extra times on my hands. Kinda bored and wanted to do something different other than my normal podcast.
Coronavirus issues are affecting the mental as well as the physical, all this isolation and social distancing is taking its toll, so I'm trying to combat it by increasing the fun factor.
Here's some jazzy sounds from outside the box, straight from the lab .... yours truly, the Mad Mixologist.
ENJOY THE MIX!

Across the world terror struck in the form of a deadly virus. The coronavirus found its way across countries, borders, oceans and into our homes and communities. In order to fight this invader we had to distance and isolate ourselves yet in a sense, this virus united us in a common cause, a common fight to defeat the enemy. One World Nation, WE WILL WIN!
This mix show is two hours designed to uplift and encourage and also to relieve you of some stress and anxiety.
Listen to the message:
We Are In This Together!
God Bless and Keep Fighting!

I couldn't let Love Day pass by without dropping something although I'm a day behind. An eventful week and some untimely technical issues set me back a few days. I was going to just skip this mix altogether but a couple well-placed requests and I gave in. It's all about love right?
Soooooo.....cozy up with that special someone and let me know how this works for ya.
Happy Belated and Enjoy the mix!

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.

When I close my eyes, whether the purpose is to settle down and relax, nap for a few or call it quits for the night and fall asleep, I like having those slow, melodic tunes by my side with the volume just right. Lullabies and ballads. It just 'does something' to you. My inquisitive nature about what that some thing is led me to do some research.
We've heard it said that music has charms to sooth a savage breast. An article I found helps make sense of that adage. The National Sleep Foundation (www.sleepfoundation.org) posted the article, "Can Music Help You Calm Down and Sleep Better?" The answer is a definite yes and they go on to explain why. Music has a positive effect, an almost enchanting effect on us biologically and that is quite relevant to this mix and its purpose.
So......with that info in mind, let's dive in.
It's time to fade to black. RELAX and ENJOY!
