IT'S ALL ABOUT BLACK MUSIC! SO FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH I AM GOING TO POST SONG THAT I LIKE FROM BACK IN THE DAY. REMEMBER I'M JUST A DJ AND I'M SENSITIVE ABOUT MY STUFF.
During Black Music Month, I wanted to share some of my very favorites I have on my Ipod. From R & B to Jazz and Gospel to Disco and House, from Steppers to Neo-Soul and Classic Soul. I hope you enjoy it. Today it's R. KELLY "TRADE IN MY LIFE" <!--more-->
Ella Jane Fitzgerald, also known as “The First Lady of Song,” was born on April 25, 1917 in Newport News, Virginia. The legendary jazz and song vocalist was considered by some to be the greatest songstress to ever live. With a voice that ranged from three octaves, “Lady Ella” brought an entirely different sound to jazz.
Zapp, also known as the Zapp Band or Zapp and Roger, is a soul and funk band originated in 1978 out of Dayton, OH. The band was formed by a group of brothers Roger Troutman, Larry Troutman, Lester Troutman, Tony Troutman, and Terry “Zapp” Troutman.
Can Hip-Hop evolve any more????????? Do emcees still have something to say???????? This five member crew out of Columbus, Ohio screams Yes, we have to! Rashad, Pa.Flex, Co City, Shakes and Blaksmif, also known as The 3rd, has been a work in progress since they met in middle school. But like P.A. says, something so special takes time to germinate. Supa Soul music is what they make, and all they do is Elevate. With influences from The roots, Outkast to Stevie Wonder, The 3rd (pronounced three-are-dee) is indeed the future of music.
The Temptations are an American vocal group that achieved fame as one of the most successful acts to record for Motown Records. The group's repertoire has included, at various times during its five-decade career, R&B, doo-wop, funk, disco, soul, and adult contemporary music.
