Wrong boards

October 22, 2017

So when I went to work on Friday, I found out the 2 displays I posted last week were on the wrong size boards. Oops. So I recycled. 

Paint pen on foam core and board.

Triceratops and Stegosaurus moving up the front yard river. Are they looking for something, or is something looking for them?

Had a little fun in the OC this week. Paint pens on the break room wall at the Smile headquarters, Irvine.

Smile!


After a quick little dawn patrol session, of course.

The hit list

June 5, 2017

Locked and loaded on some wonderfulness this week.  Just in time for summer. A few slipped through but we did strike Brazilian gold none the less.  These rare beauties will be the cornerstone for what is surely to come.  And like the universe, this South American sonic world is limitless.  Wagner Tiso is a psych jazz maestro in a category of 1, and thus competes only with his previous greatness.  These guys did a stint with Mr. Milton Nasciamento, so they got that going as well.  Ever since Eduardo huffed and puffed and blew my house down, we have been smitten.  I can vaguely picture the smile on Madlib’s face when he fanned the dust off this gem for the first time.  So smooth you can put on your toast.  And you are surely to be familiar with this Marku Ribas classic monster, vai Marku vai!  If this doesn’t put you on the moon then eat your Wheaties.  This is nothing short of sugary splendidness.  We have some additional unearthed sweetness waiting to makes it’s way north to Vinylly Found.  Until then.

It’s been a while 
since my eyes have seen 
a daybreak over rocky shores. 
This lucid scape, my mind creates 
Remembering times in the pools. 
Once your out,  past crash and thunder
The mind can stop and be. 
Before the lines are marching
and the waves start forming
Breath, be, live, see.  You’re free

Quincy Jones plays nice, in paradise, where groovin is a must.  Gula Matari both here and now to benefit the best of us.  The set that Ramsey dreams at night has me talking in my sleep.  Although the sound begins to fade.  Some love is all we need.

I seem to start every year on the same note.  Dm#7 with Brazil on my mind.  It just came to light, that my first record buys of 2017 have all been, coincidentaly Brazilian.  I have been wanting a few of these for a long long while.  Mario Castros Neves brings the old school, Kiko Dinucci the new.  Curumin is the grandmaster of them all.  The man behind the mask.  Marku has been on the radar as well so a guest appearance will most definitely due, especially on this magnitude.  The New Baianos and Raulzito will be here within weeks via Dona Rosa.  I received the first in the mail today and to celebrate, the jams.

The Man Behind the Curtain

November 9, 2016

Tomorrow we celebrate the life of a legend.  No, we are not referring to high comandar Trump.  Allen Touissant died one year ago tomorrow.  He was a true musicman. Not often in the limelight, and releasing only a handful of solo albums, he wrote countless hits, was a transending producer, piano extrodinaire and the mastermind of the godfathers of funk, The Meters.  Touissant co-founded Sansu records in 1965, and The Meters were the studio band on such classics such as Lee Dorsey’s Working on a Coal Mine, Betty Harris’s Theres a Break in the Road, Dr. John’s Right Place, Wrong Time as well as releasing their own solo albums which are the funk benchmark.  Touissant would later develop another funky house band Chocolate Milk in the late 70s who would also go on to release their own material, often occompanied by Touissant on the piano.  Touissant’s songs have been recorded by The Stones, The Who, Otis Redding, The Yardbirds, and the list goes on.  So when you have the post election blues tomorrow, remember the beautiful music brought into the world by the musical genius Allen Touissant. Here are 3 tracks for your listening pleasure.  A cover by Lou Donaldson, a Dr. John jam Touissant produced and played piano, and a burner off his second solo album, Life, Love and Faith.  Enjoy.
