A mix of Stevie Nicks, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, with a dash of interpretation like Cassandra Wilson ,the Phenomenal Ruthie Foster captures a new rock and soul sound mixed with spirituals, jazz and country in generating her signature sound. I guess it is not quite a signature sound because she floats effortlessly between […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Everyday, we all wake up with a new idea or we wake up focused on something that we are dreaming about doing. The difficult aspect is actually getting started. A couple of years ago I found myself getting distracted by music. I wanted to do something with it although I don’t play any instruments and […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

A couple of days ago I switched on the Roku and clicked on my Pandora link to listen to some music while I graded some papers. As usual, I encountered someone that took my attention away from my papers and kept me in a lightweight trance. Sia has been around for over 10 years, but […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
It’s a known fact that we learn through repetition. Unfortunately, parents repeating the same thing over and over again tend to go in one ear and out the next. I call this current generation the ear bud generation. They always have ear buds in their ears and listening to God knows what. Music shapes our […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.

Acoustic + Soul + Country + Spring + Summer + Fall + Warmth + Date Night … I could go on and on and on, but sometimes when you discover someone and they actually make you feel some kind of way, you don’t run out of words to explain just what they are. By now […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Alright as you know, or probably don’t since I don’t get as much traffic as I should, I only post a Get To Know when I have a fit of inspiration. Consider this a straight up conniption fit. It’s hard for me to get excited about Hip-Hop lately. Obviously we all lose it with another […]Continue Reading... 1 Comment.
Originally posted this in May of 2010, I wrote this because I had been digging Dwele for a while. Although I knew many people wouldn’t see this post I wrote it because I feel that great artists deserve whatever search engine info that can be put out there.

Typically I have a lot to say when I write a Get To Know. I’m inspired and I have a need for you to know what I’m feeling when I’ve heard or seen something that is so necessary… that I am at a loss for words. I’m not at a loss: Buy everything by Gregory […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
If I see an artist with Herbie Hancock there is an instant amount of validation. Obviously I expect the artist with him to be a pianist. I also expect that artist to be capable of composing and blending music styles. Since I’m in my office I miss the introduction and I have to sit through […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

I will probably repeat this over and over again as I begin to write more articles for CBP. My goal is to make maturity dope. In other words, jumping and bouncing all over the place is cool when you’re young. As much as I like seeing people Nay-Nay (sp?), when you get to a certain […]Continue Reading... 2 Comments.
This week FE+ arrived in Memphis and instead of going to enjoy the show at the Hi-Tone, I found myself working on some business things. If you see me, slap me for that one.
