As if the name in itself isn’t intriguing enough, the music on this is truly euphoric jazz,….the genuine engagement of rhythm & sound… This musical offering…Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do starts off by introducing us to the thought connecting vibration In Memory Of Samir Awad.

From the album Circa 1993 available now on bandcamp, Mountains is a hip hop neo-psalms gospel soul song delivered by Sean C. Johnson to take you higher. The vocals are smooth and the instrumental soundscape is on point. This brother can sing and even spits floetics. His voice kinda reminds me of Anthony Hamilton in a way on this one….and of course i love me some Mr Hamilton… so that makes this a win win~Enjoy

You know that feeling that you get when you’re just cruising through cyberspace not really expecting too much of anything to standout in anyway whatsoever and just before you hit that close button, you come across a post that makes you say….hold up, wait a minute, whaaaaaaaat?? Are you sure?? So D’Angelo really dropping a whole album on iTunes at midnight and it’s called Black Messiah?? I think that just made me feel some type of way… i just might have to stay up tonight… needless to say i fell asleep..but i woke up this morning like yep..first things first! Go cop that new D’Angelo! The chef who cooked up & served us with a melodic slice of the devil’s pie is back to the future in rare form once again. You see, some people take forever to come out with a album but that’s ok like Sade..real music is well worth the wait…Voodoo was so damn dope, it needed a part 2 for real..the 2nd coming.. D’Angelo and The Vanguard – Black Messiah is out now on iTunes…Go get it!
The experience in itself was a perfect circle. A question with no answers. Full of laughter and tears, but no love story or plot twists. We searched for absolute truth in life, and the only undeniable answer we found was death.
Since returning, I have been working on a film based on this journey called Into the Light. It is experimental in form and best described as a meditation in un-learning. A movement in seeing without watching, hearing without listening, and the brave exploration of spirit. I look forward to sharing this film soon.”
