“all that we are, all that we got, make up the pieces, put it in a pot”

Not too many things compare to the feeling of hearing a good tune.  Music that evokes a myriad of emotions–whether from a low-end or a high-end–has always had a place in my consciousness.  As you’ll come to realize (hopefully *smile*), my tastes in music is ever-changing, but my love is unconditional.  “Audio Gumbo” is the brewing of all the sounds I’ve grown to care for.  If you’ve ever had good gumbo, you know it’s a mixture of many delicious ingredients, blended with love and meticulous care.  That’s what music is to me.  Hip hop, soul, funk, jazz, R&B, reggae, zydeco and all that’s slid in-between, I embrace them with understanding, openness and vulnerability.

Below, there waits a sample of the “gumbo” of many of the genres I really dig.  So, again, thanks for stopping by.  Funk it out, y’all.

[…] Yes, that’s right.  Yasiin Bey fka Mos Def has teamed up with New Orleans hitmaker Mannie Fresh.  Quite unexpected but nonetheless anticipated, the Brooklynite has made a new home in the Crescent City and put it in his mind to go ahead and make some new music there as well.  Befittingly so, he’s linked up with Mannie Fresh, Cash Money alumni and consummate New Orleans dj.  Bey seems to have a soft heart when it comes to N.O. culture.  He, along with a host of others, lent his talents to Mark Ronson’s interpretation of New Orleans jazz with “A La Modeliste.” […]

  2. […] the artists did a great job representing classic New Orleans music.  Great set.  Where were Yasiin Bey and Trombone Shorty though?  Check out the performance […]
