#Blues is the #mother of #jazz – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace #Music

Blues is the mother of jazz. From Free Jazz to Swing. No one can tell me how to sing blues. My ancestors owned that sh*t. Appropriate it all you like.

Ignorants blaming singers singing off. What about the other musicians playing out of tune. Not playing in the singers key?

Here is a great read for those who still don’t compute what I’m saying.

Especially Europeans who think they invented jazz or those who like to disrespect gospel music in jazz progressively; a poignant benchmark in jazz, historically, from blues, without which – you have nothing ..’ –

Some Europeans carrying on about jazz make me laugh when they act as if it’s their legacy and not black origin music. That’s a blues for you to note.

My Aretha Franklin Tribute

So my good friend Jaylee invited me to bless the mic when we ran into each other the night before; in Knightsbridge.

Then, this happened. Thank you my darling. You are a good friend with a good heart ..’

Thank you Troy Bar and the House Band for this #ArethaFranklin #tribute. Great song & great musicians. Considering this was unplanned: Thank you to Princess for capturing the video too. #MuchLove ..’ – #In14ways

I’ve read Aretha’s Biography years ago in a book I still have. So insightful. Also have scores of music arrangements of Aretha’s work.

Grew up on her fondly and loved her sense of humour and sassy wit. Definitely an impressionable masterclass act in the veins of Picasso and Leonardo Di Vinci.

She will always be adored and admired. Thank you for inspiring us all soulfully. Time has come. Goodnight. Sweet dreams ..’ 😍😍😍

“Music and writing has helped me deal with adversity ruthlessly. Narcolepsy and Cataplexy has been a difficult experience for me to live with, but my creativity gives me purpose, drive, healing, ambition, direction; and suddenly, life has a new meaning to me. One being an Inspiration and the other to Give BACK”.  – Anthony Everest

“Anthony is a dynamic performer whose sound is characterized by a hybrid of jazz vocals, blues beats and scatological rifts, indeed a soul singer with an acoustic twist” –

(Podium Magazine Review).

The View – ‘Two Sides to a Story’.

tumblr_inline_n16aacg7QQ1rcxj9cThere is always two sides to a story ..’ The one told and the one untold. When two faced people slander openly, saboteur or backbite; to score cheap – loveless points :: just remember this. By their vibrations you shall know them. Ditto :: In the end, what will be will be – and always does, because love always trumps.
