After a quick little dawn patrol session, of course.

At California and Ave. A, Yucaipa. 

It’s been a while.

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

Riding on a caravan.through a window made of gold. Nothings what it seems to be or how the story goes.To complicate the matter further Bola Sete is on the run..The more the beat goes on and on the deeper shit is done.

January 14, 2017

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.

Demo daze.

Mother Load

September 15, 2016

We attended the quarterly San Juan record bonanza and boy did we hit the mother load. We came in just under a dollar a record.  Here is a sampler of the goods.  The James Brown two part jam we had on 45, but not the full album.  In fact we pulled in a plethera of JB funk anthems.  The second track was written by an 18 year old Steve Winwood.  Say What!  And last but not least, another notch in the Paul Simon belt.  This is a soft one for Theostyle. Moby remixed this at the FYF fest a few weeks ago and I about lost my mind.  When I went to relive the glory a few days later I realized this album was missing from the repetoire, so the timing couldn’t have been better.  Thank you San Juan Record Man, you always deliver.

Back to Joe’s

I recently was given an opportunity to be rehired at Trader Joe’s, Redlands. Thanks Brina! I have the pleasure of getting an early start on the day by doing signs and other projects with the store 99 team. Here are a few chalk pen signs. Enjoy.

Good things come to those who wait

July 7, 2016

Its been a long long while since we brought the jams.  We have had our face in the books and noses to the grindstone.  But the goose is loose, so watch yo butt.  We will do a top to bottom ebay, grandma’s collection sandwich to celebrate the hollowdays.  To open the sesh, and to close out the Patto collection, a track from Roll ‘Em Smoke ‘Em Put Another Line Out.  Not even in the mail yet, Singing the Blues on Reds is too hot to wait for tangible possession.  Peace of mind will have to suffice.

Bottom dropper numero dois is a smokin gospel R&B crossover track, first gospel banger of the collection.  Evelyn Freeman and her exciting voices will make you move and take you to church all in one wipe snipe.  This track, featuring 14 exciting voices, is an underground hit not to be missed.  This was an essential jam to have for your in car record player (we want one) cruisin down the boulevards in the early 60s.

And for the cake on top, João Donato, our Brazilian brother from another mother.  We made a $30 offer for the this one only to be shut down.  2 weeks later we won this bad (Donato) boy for a cool 10 spot.  Good things come to those who wait.  Straight Jacket has Heise written all over it. Ah the good ole days.  Luckily for us the Brazilian jazz funk master spent a good portion of his career here in the states, and is one of the easier Brazilian artists to find US pressings.  Vai Joao vai!!!  Disclaimer: These tracks should be enjoyed with a tall glass of mint and watermelon juice on a hot summer day like today.  Enjoy!

 

Father’s Day walk about

June 30, 2016

Jeffrey, San Jacinto

For Father’s Day weekend my family sweated it out pool side in Palm Desert. On the Monday we took a tram ride up to the top of San Jacinto. 120•F at the bottom, 88•F at the top. It was an absolute beautiful day at 8500 feet. If you haven’t been, go. Over 200 species of animals in one spot. A beautiful walk around long valley. And my son became a junior ranger to put the cake on top. 

Animals are cool
