Forgotten Treasure: Gil Scott-Heron “Bicentennial Blues” / Moodymann

I thought I’d pair these two together because, well, obviously one is heavily inspired from the other. Moodymann, by far one of my favorite 2-3 house producers of the last 10+ years took a Gil Scott-Heron poem recorded live from his record called “It’s Your World” (1976) and gave it …

Future Classic: Steve Arrington “Goin Hard” (produced by Dam-Funk)

Pretty much anytime that mister Dam-Funk drops a new project I pay very close attention. Other than his great talent, I really respect the dude and his entire approach to music. I had the pleasure of playing with him in 2009 (check out the recorded set here) As Stones Throw …

Forgotten Treasure: Eddie Hinton “I Can’t Be Me”

Eddie Hinton fits right into to the Forgotten Treasures section. I didn’t know about him at all until I read a little story about “Blue Eyed Soul” today, a term that media came up with for white artists who sang R&B… Yeah, it was a different time I guess. But …
