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

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.

GRP....if you don't know, you're about to find out. Dave Grusin and Larry Rosen came together to create a powerhouse, an unbelievable collection of super-talented jazz musicians back in the late 70's and early 80's. Ron Holloway, of Smooth Groove Radio...The Vibe, and I were chatting about music history like we always do and once we hit the GRP subject, we dwelled there for a while. That makes sense since their catalogue was so extensive, thus the inspiration for this show. Although this is a smidgeon of the catalog and represent only a handful of artists I think you'll like and probably remember the songs heard on this show. I didn't even get to Chick Corea, Al Jarreau and all the later additions to the label's lineup courtesy of Tommy Lipuma in the late 90's.

That's what I love about music so much. So much wealth in history, stored in my music vault.

Ya'll ready to ride?? Ok thennnn,let's GO!

I'm back with some more, this podcast on the heels of some 'me' time. Yep...summer brings on sunshine and vacation. Thankfully I had jus enough of both. I had a pretty nice getaway, hitting the road for about 5 hours or so. And you know I was listening to?? That's right...The Carefree Drives were loaded up back to back. Helped make that drive seem a lot shorter, smoother and enjoyable. I couldn't wait to get back home and produce another segment...so here it is.

Pop this one in the MP3 player when you get on one of those long drives. This mix comes in at around 2 hrs and 40 min. I'm definitely sure it'll enjoyably help get you to your destination. Let me know...

Featured on this extended podcast is music from Doc Flowers, Vincent Ingala, Pieces Of A Dream, The Sax Triplets, Larry White, Najee, Nelson Rangell, Chris Standring, Gerald Veasley, Jonathan Butler, Incognito, Althea Rene, Julian Vaughn, Art Porter, Lindsey Webster, Brian Taquin, Paul Taylor, Jeanette Harris, The Rippingtons, Chris Walker, R. L. Walker, Brian Clay, Charley Langer
