Like You Say You Do
As you can probably tell from my posts this week, I've been on mellow mellow (right on) mode and so I'm gonna end it on the same note. I recently got a promo of the new Menahan Street Band album and it's just as good as I thought it would be. Most people will know them from Jay-Z's "Roc Boys" (Jay basically rapped over the title track, "Make The Road By Walking") and from various other projects with The Dap Kings, Antibalas, El Michaels Affair, Joe Bataan, Budos Band etc. (basically that whole ill community of musicians coming out of New York). I've been a fan of all those cats for years and it's good to see them finally get some shine. I also posted up one of my favorite Lee Fields 7"'s that he recorded with some of the band. This joint will be worth $ one day - TRUST!
Enjoy and have a good weekend, y'all...
