I Went Easter Egg Hunting Today .:Apr 05 10:.
Easter .:Apr 04 10:.
So it's easter and stuff where Jesus rises from the grave and fights the evil spirits riding a rabbit or something like that? I don't really know... [okay I'm joking... I apologize if I offended you...] Either way... we at Homegrown Blends want to wish you and your families a VERY Happy Easter. Beware the Easter Bunny... He sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake, he knows when you're doing bad things to yourself...
Jose' James .:Apr 03 10:.
So... my goal for the last 2 weeks, [with my insomnia getting the best of me] has been to "discover" 2 new artists each day, that I was not previously familiar with. Old, new, hip hop, jazz, funk... Betty Carter, Athene Wilson, Little Jimmy Scott, The Bamboos, Rocky Rivera, Hudson Mohawke... some you've heard of... some you may not have heard of. One of the most notable has been the works of Jose' James from Brooklyn. Apparently he has some earlier works with Jazzaanova, Mitsu The Beats [of whom I have been a fan of] and a piano trio called J.A.M. If anyone knows how to get ahold of this cat, PLEASE let me know; JABAone@HomegrownBlends.com Regardless of what the haters say, Jose James' cover of Freestyle Fellowship's "Park Bench People" FLOORED ME! PEEP!also Also peep out the title joint "The Dreamer" from his album of the same name released in 2008. This song brought TEARS to my eyes. WOW!!! NOTHING has moved me this much since I first heard Miles' "Blue In Green" or when I saw Grover do "Can You Stop The Rain" in concert at Humphrey's here in San Diego in 1998. WOW!!! That's all I can say is WOW...
