FADER TV: Common f. Erykah Badu, "The Light" (Live at the Levi's®/FADER Fort)

You have been oriented that you must pay a price in order to get somewhere, and in the process, you’ve come to believe that getting there must be really important, therefore, it must be your purpose. And we say, but if you’re not getting to joy, then you’ve gotten nowhere. Joy is really where you’re going.

R.I.P. St. Nic

Photobucket

Recently, rapper and friend of mine, Reggie Coleman aka "St. Nic" passed in a motorcycle accident. His wife had just passed a few months ago, and both of them will be sorely missed. However, this isn't a moment of sadness. This a moment of celebration for the life St. Nic led through his music and as a human being. I hadn't known him long, but the time I did, we shared fun times in the studio and he inspired me through his appreciation for my music and always gave good ideas. I hope that the children involved will be okay through this time and I pray that they are blessed with the wisdom to grow into great women and men. St. Nic will be remembered for his great charm and spirit. Rest in peace.

Sincerely,

Omen

John Coltrane - Giant Steps

One of my favorites...

Giant Steps'" is a jazz recording by John Coltrane, on tenor saxophone, which is the first track on the album of the same name and is 4 minutes and 49 seconds long. The composition is a milestone for jazz musicians' progress, given the difficulty of improvising its rapid progression of chord changes that progress through three keys shifted by major thirds.
The saxophonist had previously used this technique on the LP Blue Train on the tunes Moment's Notice and Lazy Bird. Coltrane continued in this vein on a recording with Cannonball Adderley of the standard "Limehouse Blues," and on his original "Fifth House." He continued to use this approach on other tunes, such as "Countdown", based on the Miles Davis tune "Tune Up"; "26 2" based on Charlie Parker's "Confirmation"; and a reharmonization of the jazz standard "Body and Soul." Songs such as "Naima" and "Like Sonny" also show some harmonic similarity to "Giant Steps." Coltrane continued to employ similar concepts in his soloing during his more open and modal middle period. A Love Supreme features examples of lines based on "Giant Steps" cycles over modal vamps, to create a Polytonal effect.
