Undergrad reflections…Freddie Hubbard

​A thought triggered to the priceless moments of my Music Professor that taught Classical and Jazz. Just imagine having to write review on going to see #TootieHeath (while the man himself stops the show midway just to acknowledge your OG mentor that you’re hanging with in the audience ..over the top..). My professor made it a point to drive the genius of #FreddieHubbard and the #bebop movement into our subconscious. Naturally, I passed both courses with flying colors. Reflective mood. #mood #jazz #unique74

Happy Anniversary N*E*R*D “In search of…”

​Honorable mention: 16 years ago..I was working a day gig while interning and moonlighting for 3 plus different labels (sorry My artful skill of negotiating allowed me to convince the company head of my day gig to allow me full clearance to leave my job early (two days a week)while having the other foot in what would eventually become classic releases. I felt very strong about the promise in this album and was always partial to the European mix. I have the last limited instrumental vinyl somewhere in my arsenal. I was very honored to be part of the ground work in this iconic release. Happy 16th Anniversary of the N*E*R*D release “In Search Of..”!! #nerd #classics #theneptunes #djaski #unique74

Dinner Flow 8.6

Paid In Full 30

Honorable Mention: People carelessly use the word “classic” in today’s world of microwave culture yet never prepared a home cooked meal. There are hot items of the month and there are important movements of a lifetime. This release shook the stratosphere (alongside Public Enemy’s “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back”) while being an embodiment of the most celebrated and boldly definitive years of 87-88. Street smart, musically colorful, lyrically superior and rich in soul. All along they knew we gotta “make em’ clap to this”. This release was a movement…”I ain’t no joke”. Happy 30 Year Anniversary of the iconic release “Paid In Full”. #paidinfull #ericbandrakim #unique74
