Re-Birth of The Cool @ Iridium

Sent from my iPhone

Re-Birth of the Cool At Iridium

A black and blue evening of inside healing thru music. A weekender that left me spiritually satisfied and yearning for more of this cozy heated feeling. I prepared for an evening of jazz at the Iridium Jazz club celebrating Miles Davis music festival featuring Lenny White jazz fusion drummer noted for his appearance on Miles Davis historic recording on Bitches Brew. As one walks downstairs into a neatly positioned tables adorn with blue tablecloths, candle and blue lights surrounding it's darkness and highlighting the red neon emblazon "Iridium" I was at home once more checking out my piece of treasured music jazz. Sitting down at our reserved table near the stage I cozy back into the booth and waited for our waiter to order a glass of wine and the entree for the night. If there was heaven on earth I just about found it in these precious jewel joints full of melody, instrumentalist of such superior genius melting into the arms of New Orleans, Mississippi
Delta tracing roots to Kilimanjaro returning to nest comfortably in Harlem and The Village, A rebirth of the cool reverberation. A unbelievable non-stop trip inside the music of Miles which has always left me intoxicated. Last night was a musical feast which I gobbled up keeping all inside forever. Happiness to me is snuggling up on the couch with the Amsterdam news, brand new copy of Wax Poetics featuring Prince on the cover and Frank Ocean I can't express how wonderfully righteous this impeccable magazine is straight up put together. Flip on some good music I'm in ultimate peace oh I can dig a good kiss to top it off I really don't mine baby!!!

Peace Lepadah

Growing up Soul Train . . . Don Cornelius R.I.P.

Remembering Saturday morning Soul Train getting down to James Brown doing the "Good Foot" Lord have mercy on little Miss Percy. Those were the days man... my sister and I couldn't wait for Saturday following the latest and I was dancing fool. Don Cornelius with his signature sign off which always imitated. The soul train dancers, all the blazing stars and super cool outfits we all rush to the boutiques/store to cop the latest slick California style . . . shit I still have my rainbow suspenders from my dad, our flowered pants and satin shirts. The music was flowered beautifully in our youthful minds holding it as our musical keepsakes forever and we are in 2012 still snapping, dancing and spinning down the soul train line. I will always treasure Don Cornelius and the prominent visionary he was in our culture. Ok time to get up from my desk and do the "Good Foot."

Peace 1 The lep
