So what are you listening to?

GE Model JM3 Record Player

I have been doing just a little music shopping online and in my local record stores and have come back with a few treasures. I am listening to Sarah Vaughan, Cyrus Chestnut, Soulive, James Carter, The Crusaders, Stanley Turrentine, Jessica Williams, Yellowjackets, Dionne Farris, Aretha Franklin, Herbie Hancock, Julie Dexter, and Tramaine. More goodies are on the way so you can expect some new music reviews in the coming weeks. As always, thanks for stopping by and for the love.
