Chet Baker- Born To Be Blue

I’ve been listening a lot to Chet Baker recently and discovered “Born to be Blue” which completely blew me away. The song is in the standard 12-bar blues  but played on a piano and has Baker singing in his well-know whispery and soft-voiced way.

Pusha T- Numbers On The Boards

I have always been a fan of Clipse since their commercial debut “Lord Willin” back in 2002. Their second album “Hell Hath No Fury” is an exceptional album that I played continuously for months. It completely surpassed their first album in production and scope.  The two brothers, Malice and Pusha T, always seemed to be rapping […]
