Now a bit of Aussie soul-funk-jazz.
Cookin’ On 3 Burners have always been awesome, but relatively unknown. It’s hard out here for a jazz trio.
Daniel Merriweather is a little more known, and they always like mixing it up with talented soul singers.
Anyway, last year, they collaborated, and gave us ‘Losin’ Streak’. The video obviously bore the budget one would expect from a hard-working Australian jazz trio, but the song is fun and funky. Here it is.
We stay recent today, with a song from Bahamas. Not the place, the guy! His real name is Afie and his latest album released last August, titled ‘Bahamas is Afie’, is pretty damn good. It’s chill. And I like chill.
This song is ‘Stronger Than That’.
Now, to something more recent. Actually, as recent as last October.
And this is as much about the video as the music, but both are good.
Today, George Ezra (and Ian McKellen) bring us ‘Listen to the Man’.
Today’s song is ‘You Goin’ Miss Your Candyman’ by Terry Callier. The song is off his 1973 album, What Color Is Love. It’s an awesome album. Maybe his best, but he did have a few great ones.
Man I wish I could have seen him live. This is just about the only live recorded version of this I could find on the interwebz, but you’ll get the idea.
Let’s stay old school and legendary for a day, with Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Keep On Keeping On’.
And may I put it to you all that his ‘Superfly’ soundtrack to the film of the same name, is the best movie soundtrack ever. Although, this song isn’t off that soundtrack. It just sparked my thought.
What’s your favourite film soundtrack?
It’s time for song of the day! Of course, as I type this, I don’t yet know what it is. It’s not as though I have insufficient options. It’s just, yesterday was Joss Stone day, and, I mean, how do I follow that??
I don’t. I can’t. I’m out. Find your own damn song.
Oh, okay! I’ll come on back.
I’ll find one. I guess I’m going to have to go a little old school and bring out the big guns.
Bam! Jimi Hendrix, bitches!
