SOUL (two) MIX – New Podcast

SOUL (two) HarlemCondoLife HCL

Everything’s better with a little soul on it!  A follow up podcast to SOUL (one), comes SOUL (two) with more r&b, soul, some hip hop and classics.  As with the first one, we never work up to a house beat with this mix either.  But the downbeat grooves blended with the old school tracks will keep you satisfied from start to finish.

On this mix you can expect to hear Stevie Wonder, The Roots, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Sade, Tribe Called Quest, Mary J Blige, Wyclef Jean, Fantasia, Missy Elliott, Faith Evans, John Legend, Caron Wheeler, Common, Aretha Franklin, Notorious B.I.G., Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Angie Stone and more.

SOUL (one) Podcast

SOUL inside Cropped

In honor of Black History Month and Valentine’s Day for the month of February “SOUL (one)” celebrates a compilation of soul, soul and more soul!  Nothing fancy, no tricks or DJ effects just raw talent.  The mix flows pretty smoothly throughout with back to back downtempo grooves ending with a couple ballads including “A Song For You” by Donny Hathaway.  Check out the playlist below and hopefully “your song” is somewhere in the mix.  If not I definitely have enough material for a SOUL (two) & (three) mix.  Hopefully in March & April.

Celebrate Black History Month… and have a soulful, Happy Valentine’s Day!

Sunday Jazz Corner With Rachelle Ferrell

For those who don’t know, you need to know.  For those who do know, you don’t need me telling you why Rachelle Ferrell is so respected and admired by all of our musical greats and in the jazz community.  There is a reason Jennifer Hudson, Gladys Night, Stevie Wonder and the list goes on and on, can be found at one her live performances.  With a little bit of Sarah Vaughan to a little bit of just about everything but the kitchen sink, this contemporary jazz artist creates, channels and delivers styles that nobody has even heard of yet.  This is someone that was born to sing and perform music.  We hear over and over about certain singers and hopeful talent rising up in the business who are tagged with the word unique.  I’m encouraged to watch these new singers to develop and grow.  Rachelle Ferrell on the other hand is the definition of the word “unique.”
But don’t take my word for it just listen to what “the voice” can do.

Here are two videos  (live) below showing off her jaw dropping vocal abilities and her passionate commitment in how it is delivered.
