The j-notes groove…
The past few days have been a little busy for me. Friday night, I went to see Christian McBride
. Saturday night, I saw Soulive
at The Fillmore
and Monday, I made a little road trip to LA
to see Lizz Wright
at the Cerritos Center for Performing Arts
. All were excellent shows and I will have reviews posted later in the week along with a new Flashback Friday entry that I am sure you will enjoy.
It rained all day while I was LA. I stopped off at Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles
in Hollywood for lunch and was served enough waffles and gospel bird to feed a family of five. An interesting lesson I learned, fly gear is universal. I saw a good suburban kid rockin’ a Gucci bucket hat
and gold chain with a cross while his mom was rockin’ a white velour Phat Farm
jogging suit [laughs]. I was saddened by the number of homeless people I saw in the rain. As we pay our taxes today, we know our monies will go towards paying for this senseless war while the homeless still continue to suffer.
On a happier note, I stopped into Amoeba
and found a couple of gems. I picked up “Q: The Musical Biography of Quincy Jones
” and Christian McBride’s
