32 Days of Halloween XII, Day 20: The Raven!

So today we kick off with a #TrackoftheDay that’s mainly Halloweenish by association. Yes, you may recognize this song–it was covered by INXS for The Lost Boys.

Martin Luther King Jr. Explains the Importance of Jazz: Hear the Speech He Gave at the First Berlin Jazz Festival (1964)

Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream of full inclusion for Black Americans still seems painfully unreal fifty years after his death. By most significant measures, the U.S. has regressed. De facto housing and school segregation are entrenched (and worsening since the 60s and 70s in many cities); voting rights erode one court ruling at a time; the racial wealth gap has widened significantly; and open displays of racist hate and violence grow more worrisome by the day. Yet the movement was not on...

Homeboy Sandman – “Dusty” (Album)

If you have been sleeping on Homeboy Sandman, time to wake up.  “Dusty” is the new album by the rap via Mello Music Group solely produced by Mono En Stereo.  It’s a synthesized fusion of four elements hip-hop and Jamaican toasting, Nuyorican flavor and an experimental dead bent to expand the parameters of language. When you listen to Sandman, you hear the echoing boom of the South Bronx park jams of Kool Herc, the avant-garde wild style of Rammellzee, the technical perfection of Rakim and Big D...
