Big K.R.I.T. has determined that this week would be his week, everyday he’s been blessing us with a new track. Today’s gem comes in the form of a sweet and melodic track featuring A$AP Ferg, the Trap Lord, and Big Krizzle spitting over a nicely laid Bootsy Collins sample from “Munchies For Your Love”, which was also used on Scarface’s “Now I Feel Ya”. Nice Doughboy reference from K.R.I.T. as well.
In 2012 Cody ChesnuTT released Landing On A Hundred, in 2014 he is releasing some b-sides from the album. This little number features Bluesman Gary Clark Jr. and I would not be upset if these two decided to record a whole album together. They compliment each other perfectly. “Gunpowder On The Letter” is equal parts country, blues, rock, and soul. Or as I like to call it CountrySoul RockinBlues…..trademarked…..anyway enjoy…
Before he was the Grammy award winning Gregory Porter, he was just Gregory Porter, the incredibly awesome jazz singer. Here is a performance from The Jazzwoche Burghausen on March 16th, 2013. Gregory performs tracks from his first two releases Water and Be Good, both of which are available on Mr. Porter’s website. If you have heard Liquid Spirit then and love it as you should, then you will love these two albums as well. Gregory’s voice is just a dynamic live as it is on record. He is a real treasure to the Jazz community and I look forward to many years of amazing music from him.
The Personnel at this performance are:
GREGORY PORTER – vocals
YOSUKE SATO – alto sax
CHIP CRAWFORD – piano
AARON JAMES – bass
EMANUEL HARROLD – drums
JOHN FADDIS – trumpet (On My Way To Harlem, Work Song, & But Beautiful)
