I’ve been listening to so much new stuff, it was hard for me to concentrate and come up with this. I started with two ideas but I shelved them and came up with this in the 11th hour.

The one song that I absolutely had to put in this mix is Thinking About Your Love. When I heard this cut recently, I almost ran off the road. I hadn’t heard it in more than 15 years. The System, Howard Johnson, Bryan Loren, and Shalamar stick out in my mind as cuts I would hear in clubs. The Mac Band had some really good cuts from their Luv U 2 The Limit CD, as I Could Never Say Goodbye demonstrates, with it’s homage to Cameo. Michael Jeffries’ cut is followed by SOS Band, it’s because they’re both cuts which have background vocals from no other than Lisa Keith. Two songs that we always grooved to (but rarely admitted) were Kenny’s This Is It, and of course the ultimately mellow In The Mood by The Whispers. Don Blackman, George Duke, Teena Marie and Howard Huntsberry round out the mix with their stellar smooth moves.
Special thanks to
JC for looking out for the acid jazz podcasts (which are now working and are downloadable), and Zuri for reminding me about Howard Huntsberry.
Take it light.
