So remember when I told you about The Roots headlining the Playboy Jazz Festival? Yeah, I made it out. And here is all the awesome proof.

By the way… check out Slidedeck. Its the truth and the future. I know the photos dont fit into the format yet (still working on it), but if you want to see the picture in full, all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to the full photo.

Also, an interesting interview with Questlove regarding The Roots leading such a prominent jazz festival. I mean, since The Legendary are basically a Jazz Band that do hip hop, I don’t understand what the problem is. Yeah, some of the 60+ got up and left… but they were like, 60. No offense. (And thanks euroweb for featuring my video.)

But really, the YouTubes should give you an ideal of what a fun time it was. Everything I have is up on my YouTube page for you to see.
The best part? The Gil Scott-Heron Cover of “The Bottle” with Terrance Blanchard on the horns. Wow.
Second to that… the lead in from Bob James and Fourplay doing “Westchester Lady,” which led right to The Roots set. Dopeness.

The Roots and Terrance Blanchard: Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle”

….The start of the show… Bob James and Fourplay do “Westchester Lady” before The Roots tear the roof off.

…and here we go.

..and there you go. I didn’t even go to this thing with the intent of recording. I was on my 3rd glass of chardonnay. So its not the greatest stability in the camera. But I hope you semi-enjoy.
Leave a comment in the awesome discuss feature for me, and spread the word.

I love this fucking photo.

Yay! So if you know me, you know I have a history of loving Cage The Elephant deeply. And you should already know my thoughts on their last album, “Thank You Happy Birthday.” So anytime they drop anything new, I’m probably going to make a short blog and feature it here for you to see. Behold… the newest, weirdest video for the new single, “Around My Head.” Still more laid back than that first album, but good quality nonetheless.

Never hurts to throw in amazing brand new (to me) live footage that reminds me why I fell in love with this intense, wild, musically kickass band to begin with.

That first album is still the soundtrack of my life and travels from ’09 to ’10. LoL.
Enjoy.

You need to listen to Quadron right fast. Links:

Quick post, but an awesome post.

Ambient, soulful, electronic, fairly kickass. After seeing Quadron mentioned in my timeline a few days ago by some great friends, I was quickly reminded of how amazing Quadron is, and how I have not yet made a post to appreciate that awesome. A Denmark Duo, these kids have been churning out jams for the better part of the last two years. And if they can keep sounding like this, I will keep acting like I care.

Yeah.
Ima go listen to this for a while. You guys tell me what you think. And its real easy with disqus down there now. lol.
