Samantha Fish: Black Wind Howlin

I've got Samantha Fish's latest album "Black Wind Howlin" on constant play right now.  Man I don't really know where to start with this young lady.  Love her guitar work, love her voice, and love her songs.  She is new and fresh, and I'm sure she will have a long storied career because she is coming out of the gate smoking hot.

She is a very talented singer, songwriter and blues guitarist, hope to see more good stuff from her in the future.

Tye Tribbett Gospel - What Can I Do

Lately I've been checking out more of the Grammy nominated Gospel acts out there.  According to Wiki;

Tyrone "Tye" Tribbett (born January 26, 1976) is an American gospel music singer, songwriter, keyboardist, choir director and founder of the Grammy-nominated and Stellar-Award winning gospel group Tye Tribbett & G.A. (short for 'Greater Anointing.')
I really enjoy the energy that this song has.

The Tomas Doncker Band

Spent the morning listening to a new Moanin' at Midnight: The Howlin' Wolf Project by the Tomas Doncker Band.  And I have to say it is good stuff.  I really like their rendition of Howlin Wolf's "Spoonful".

This band is exactly the kind of music that I enjoy listening to, they are rooted in traditional blues music, but are also pushing the boundaries and not just kicking out the same old sound.  This band does Traditional Blues, Psychedelic Blues, Soul, and I think I hear some Reggae/World Music influences in there.  And it is all done with style and skill.

Check out this video of their song "Shook Down" which was co-written by the legendary Pulitzer Prize winning poet Yusef Komunyakaa.  I also love the harmonica being played in this video.

Billie Holiday ft Sy Oliver & His Orchestra - Them There Eyes (Decca Rec...

When I woke up this morning, my wife was laying there staring at me with those baby browns... made me think of this song.

My favorite part of the lyric is;

"... you better look out little brown eyes, if you're wise, they sparkle, they bubble, they going to get you into a whole lot of trouble... Oh baby them there eyes! ..."

Very Cool Photos of HipHop Greats from Rolling Stone.Com

Very Cool Photos of HipHop Greats From Rolling Stone.Com Rarely Seen Images of ... Raps First 25 Years. From Grandmaster Flash to Snoop Dogg through the lens of Lisa Leone.

I really love Lisa Leone's captions that accompany these pictures, she makes you feel like you are there when she took these pictures.

I guess part of the delight of viewing these photos is realizing that some of the greats of HipHop were just kids when they started that whole thing.

And this post also got me thinking about how much Blues music and HipHop has in common, but I'll go into that more in depth in another post.

BET Awards 2014 / Yolanda Adams "Jesus Is Love"
