New frame

I ordered this one. It's an Oliver Peoples frame, model Albert J in matt black. Essentially I'm a nerd. I might as well look the part... :)

Blow

I've been listening to Blow by "Patches" Stewart the last few days. "Patches" plays the trumpet in the Marcus Miller band.

Blow is a great album filled with jazzy, funky songs that will appeal to any Marcus Miller fan. Not surprising really as Marcus plays bass, and also produced and arranged all the songs. Other notable guest musicians: Poogie Bell, Dean Brown, Kenny Garrett.

Got or like Marcus' Tales or M² album? If yes then Blow is mandatory listening for you.

My favourites:

  • I Know What You Like (do I hear a George Benson sample in there?)
  • Overjoyed (Stevie Wonder)
  • We Be Gettin' Down
  • Don't You Know
  • Cruisin'

Groovy baby!
