Can we talk?

I haven’t blogged the entire week because I’ve been in a pretty down mood, with
my work assignment in danger of ending on Friday the 13th with no hope of a
followup gig. I’m happy to say that it’s been confirmed that EJ will not need
to be workin’ at the car wash. Of course this also means that I need to catch
up to sending some CDs out (I’m sure the Burn-It people aren’t
happy with me right now), send gifts out to some wonderful people, blog
about the Prince concert
, and let you know what’s going on in this head
of mine.

1. Anita Baker’s album, My Everything, comes out on September
7th. If you’re an Anita Baker fan, pre-order
the album now
. The first two tracks on this selection are two of the songs
that stuck with me.
2. On the other side of the coin, Jazzanova’s …Mixing
was released this summer. It’s a very different vibe and a great CD in and of
itself. Three tracks here are from that CD.
3. George Michael’s album Patience
was recommended
by the lovely Cecily
and I was slow in picking it up.
4. Res? Sister
said so.
5. After hearing Beverley
with Jamiroquai,
I wondered when
I would hear more from her
. I found out she had one album out, but I didn’t
pick it up. Talk about missing the train! Her fourth
(yes fourth) album, Affirmation, came out this summer also.

Close your eyes and count to 10…
