I have survived the waterfall
And the rocks underneath
I am a memory of the ocean
Water beneath my feet
The rising tide I feel within me
Lifts me beyond the stars of night
I am the death of every motion

Some fun for a Saturday. After a an intro from Atjazz there's some garage influenced sounds, it goes a bit deep house then a bit classic house, then a little techno before ending with some soul and jazz. Check the 17 minute epic from Bobby Hutcherson.

Music is the Healing Force of the Universe

Download (Right Click)

Music is the healing force of the universe, its the door of the cosmos and there's some greats here to show you. The intergalactic Sun Ra, the larger than life composer and one of my favourite bassists Charles Mingus and the wonderful Albert Ayler all lead the cosmic way. Look out for serious groove both old and new. And it gets funky towards the end, ending as it had to with a classic Donald Byrd track. Oh and look out for a 19 year old Prince bringing the jazz-funk on keyboards.

Buddy Rich - Kilimanjaro Cookout
Yesterdays New Quintet - Liberated
Sun Ra and his Intergalatic Myth Science Solar Arkestra - Door of the Cosmos
Griot Galaxy - Liberty City Rundown
