Last night I attended the Urban Organic Eric Roberson performance at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History & enjoyed one helluva show.

As you can see in the video above, things were quite electric, which is always the case when Eric is on the stage.

I love live music! Good live music!

BTW, the video was recorded & edited iMovie on my iPhone 4. I love this thing!

Wait, speaking of good music, I have a few new music recommendations that I need to put out there!

Albums———————-

Zo – Sunstorm | A GREAT showcase of musical talents with songs performed by Phonte of Little Brother/Foreign Exchange, Sy Smith, Monica Blaire, Carlitta Durand & more.

Sunstorm has everything that a choosy soul music needs in an album; hot vocals, meaning lyrics, & catchy hooks on a dope instrumental backdrop.

On my heavy rotation playlist is:

  • Be Your Man (Darien Brockington)
  • Free Your Mind (Lady Alma)
  • Greatest Weapon Of All Time (Sy Smith)
  • Make Love to Me (Monica Blaire)
  • This Could Be The Night (Darien Brockington, Eric Roberson, Rapper Big Pooh)

Zo is a musical super talent & just can do any wrong. Pick this up, like right now!

Incognito – Transatlantic R.P.M. | Well, there’s not much to say here because I am talking about an Incognito album so that automatically makes it all that & a bag of Flaming Hot Cheetos!

Like Sunstorm, Transatlantic R.P.M. features some great & eclectic vocal talents ranging from Maysa Leak & Chaka Khan to Ursula Rucker & Tony Momrelle.

One thing that I can say about all Incognito albums is that they are always diverse with ballads, smoking jazz instrumentals & tunes that make you want to dance.

On my heavy rotation playlist is:

  • Life Ain’t Nothing But A Good Thing (Vanessa Haynes)
  • 1975 (Joy Rose)
  • Line In The Sand (Leon Ware)
  • Gotta (Ursula Rucker)
  • Make Room For Love (Tony Momrelle)

Cee Lo – Stray Bullets | I’m not gonna lie, I was not a big Goodie Mob fan. I was mildly interested in Cee Lo with Gnarles Barkley. But….. I’m fucking loving Cee Lo in this “mixtape” release!

I mentioned to a friend recently that this album kinda reminds me of some funky shit from the 70s that was produced during a weed-induced haze.

It’s just something about Cee Lo’s voice that just weird & fresh at the same time. Maybe it’s because he’s defying what would be considered “normal.”

On my heavy rotation playlist is:

  • You Don’t Shock Me Anymore
  • Cho Cha the Cat
  • Goldschläger
  • I’ll Kill Her
  • Is It?
  • Night Train

So I guess, if your ready for a trippy ride down a musical highway, you needs to cop this!

K-Murdock – Piano-Rama | If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know I love the rap duo Panacea! Piano-Rama is a solo project from producer/beat maker Kyle Murdock aKa K-Murdock & it’s totally on fire with a smooth & interesting hip-hop feel.

On his blog K-Murdock mentions that this project took 7 years to complete. He also notes that Piano-Rama will give listeners a panoramic spectrum of piano sounds that are dark & aggressive, up-tempo & mellow/spacey.  I agree with is assessment because this album gives you that and so much more.

On my heavy rotation playlist is

  • The Chosen (Megan Livingston)
  • A Better Kiss Goodbye (Wes Felton)
  • They Don’t Know (Wes Felton)
  • Mood Muzik (Bilal Salaam)
