Somewhere In Alabama (Eric Essix feat. Martin Luther King Jr. RTJ Remix)
January 15, 2020 05:48 PM PST

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.

Fade To Black Volume 4

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!

FUNK (A Smooth Jazz Mixes Exclusive)

This will be added to the morning routine at some point. Yeah, a hot shower feels good and gets things moving. Add a cup of coffee to boost things a little more, need that kick to get everything moving in the right direction. But when I turn up the funk, the morning is on a whole nutha level.

The Mixing Lab was crazy, buzzing with mad energy when I put this podcast together. Wicked bass lines, killer horns and sax, and that funky organ the Hammond B3 dropping some soul. There's some familiar cuts in there, remixed and remodeled but I won't spoil it. I'm sure you'll recognize them immediately. This mix is definitely outside of the box but like I said, there's a lot more room out there to play.

Featuring music from:
Jeff Golub, Mauri Sanchis, Larry Carlton, Novello, Pat Register, Dirk K, Brian Culbertson, Lin Rountree, Gerald Albright, Girl Talk, Randy Scott, Candy Dulfer, Dave C. Norman, Pieces Of A Dream, John Carey, George Benson, Chuck Brown, Marcus Miller, Frankie Smith, Soren Reiff,, Josh Vietti, U-Nam and Victor Wooten
ENJOY!!

SLOW ROLLIN' On The Carefree Drive

I'm vibin'....laid back, soft as cotton and silky smooth. That doesn't even begin to describe this podcast.
I suggest finding some quiet place where you can listen to this in its entirety, undisturbed. Maybe even put the headphones on for total isolation and immersion. Here you'll find 2.5 hrs of pure listening pleasure.

I get by with a little help from my friends. Certainly, having the former lead guitarist for the legendary r&b supergroup, The Commodores, as your featured guest doesn't hurt. Mikael Manley shared his idea of a carefree drive and provided me with his new chart climbing hit song, In All My Wildest Dreams, a remake of the classic hit song by jazz legend Joe Sample. Also included in this podcast are additional smooth gems from Mikael along with music from artists Valeriy Stepanov, Brian Culbertson, Bernard Harris, Nicholas Cole, Tony Guerrero, Gail Jhonson, Igor Gerzina, Eumir Deodato, Marcus Johnson, Les Sabler, Brian Simpson, Michael Paulo, Althea Rene, Ely Bruna, Najee, Avant, Fattburger, Tristan, Butch & Rhonda Coleman, Groove:55, Urs Wiesendanger, Sharon Robinson, Kool&Klean, Jason Carroll and the Smooth Jazz Symphony, Maysa, Jonathan Fritzen and J. White.

Ya'll ready to ride....let's go!!

I've been feeling this uptempo kinda vibe lately. Maybe because the days of summer are counting down and I'm holding on to that sunshine. Midwest Ohio is certainly beautiful in the fall with all its combinations of red, orange and yellow foliage but I like feeling the summer breeze. I have to admit though that mornings are nice right now, the air is crisp and fresh, and the night aren't too bad either. Easy to fall asleep and wakes you right up in the morn. The seasons are cycling through and I have put together some pretty cool music to keep us company.

First of all, let me say this ...Push Play and Turn Up The Volume!! Featuring music from Kim Scott, Euge Groove, Frank Sutton, Norman Brown, Joe McBride, Bobby Lyle, Nicholas Cole, Cindy Bradley, Alex Bugnon, Jeff Ryan, Thierry Condor, Will Donato, Mikael Manley, Steve Cole Al Gomez, Patti Austin, Nathan Mitchell, Stanley Clarke, Paul Hardcastle, Al Turner, Jazmin Ghent, Victor Haynes, Con Funk Shun, Blair Bryant and Terence Young

I've been spending more time than usual on the road, quite a bit of driving for business so I've really been immersed in the sound of music. Where I go, my sounds go. I think the isolation booth of a vehicle lets me focus on the sound quality and flow of the podcast and presents me with new ideas for upcoming shows. There's just something about the road that I feel connected to....always have.
It's not all business though. There's some pleasure in there as well. You better believe I've been doing my share of Carefree Drivin' too (Lisa does enjoy taking the helm as the musical chauffeur from time to time).

This show has a great feel to it...If you prefer a little more, high energy and feel good, the load this. You will get your fare share of it with an extended jazzy mix set to put the finishing touches on the show.

ENJOY!!
