Happy Birthday, John Elroy Sanford aka Redd Foxx
(December 9, 1922 – October 11, 1991)
Grant Green - It Ain’t Necessarily So (1962)
This tune swings as hard as it can swing.
It’s worth putting on the headphones to catch Art Blakey in the background whoopin’, hollerin’ and eggin’ the other players on, reminding you that these guys were live in the studio. Grant Green is on fire, and Sonny Clark stars in the last year of a tragically short life. Ripping.
Spike and his apple pie vodka.
Charles & David after the bar.
I haven’t eaten McDonalds in so long. I have no desire to anymore.
I’ve been on a sample kick lately. Looking up hip hop samples and making a playlist on spotify of the original songs. I’ll probably share it soon if any of y’all are interested. Soul for days.
