We're not here right now. But if you leave a message with your name, number and time you called...

 

Thomas Young - Twisted

…because it’s Friday night and I think this is one of the best versions of this song, ever! :)

Walk and Talk like the Angels by Toni Childs (1988)

One of my all-time favorite singers. Toni has a soulful voice similar to no one else on the planet. Sure, you might hear hints Phoebe Snow or Carole King but there’s something more.

I saw her live in 1989 at Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theater, or “The Troc” as we called it. She was touring clubs around the country promoting her debut album, Union. It was a great show. Since then, she’s been in and out of the public eye, but she’s still making beautiful music.

Let’s Stay Together - Al Green, Toni Childs, Carlos Santana, Tito Puente, David Sanborn, Melissa Etheridge

Paul Shaffer put together this great crew to perform Let’s Stay Together for the Late Night 7th Anniversary show in 1989.

Chris Van Sickle - Keys, Adam Dobres - Lead Guitar, Jayden McGrath - Rhythm Guitar, Andrew Livingstone - Bass and Pete McNeil on Drums.

Recorded live in the Hunter Valley january 2011 by mik la Vage

I love Toni’s intro, a message to women on violence against women.

Frankie Knuckles - Rain Falls (David’s 12 Soakin Wet Mix)

Just wanted to post one of my favs from the early 90s. :)


RIP Frankie Knuckles

Frankie Knuckles Boiler Room DJ Set

I just learned of Frankie Knuckles passing. His musical genius influenced a generation of artists and music lovers. In my brief stint as a bar dj, Frankie’s music was in regular rotation in my sets.
This news makes me sad, sad, sad.

RIP Frankie Knuckles, the man who created the soundtrack of my life.

You CAN art.

It’s just that YOUR art isn’t ever going to be like anyone else’s art. …nor should it.
