♫ Warm Rain • Apollo Brown
RIP Idris Muhammad. AKA Leo Morris
I have only just recently been touching the surface of your work.
A true groove master.
Is a catch 22. You work your ass off (or don’t) and you get to a point where you finally feel like you’ve accomplished something. Then BAM. Some(one)(thing)(idea) knocks you out. Why? because you got comfortable. You got caught slippin. There is eternal comfort in death. But until then, remain vigilant.
Too hip even for today.
To new beginnings.
McCoy Tyner - Atlantis
One of those songs you hear for the first time and just know.

Happy Birthday to the person who has had the greatest musical influence on my life & inspiration behind Jazzhoponit. Sticking to one of my favorites for this post.
