So remember when I told you about The Roots headlining the Playboy Jazz Festival? Yeah, I made it out. And here is all the awesome proof.

By the way… check out Slidedeck. Its the truth and the future. I know the photos dont fit into the format yet (still working on it), but if you want to see the picture in full, all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to the full photo.

Also, an interesting interview with Questlove regarding The Roots leading such a prominent jazz festival. I mean, since The Legendary are basically a Jazz Band that do hip hop, I don’t understand what the problem is. Yeah, some of the 60+ got up and left… but they were like, 60. No offense. (And thanks euroweb for featuring my video.)

But really, the YouTubes should give you an ideal of what a fun time it was. Everything I have is up on my YouTube page for you to see.
The best part? The Gil Scott-Heron Cover of “The Bottle” with Terrance Blanchard on the horns. Wow.
Second to that… the lead in from Bob James and Fourplay doing “Westchester Lady,” which led right to The Roots set. Dopeness.

The Roots and Terrance Blanchard: Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle”

….The start of the show… Bob James and Fourplay do “Westchester Lady” before The Roots tear the roof off.

…and here we go.

..and there you go. I didn’t even go to this thing with the intent of recording. I was on my 3rd glass of chardonnay. So its not the greatest stability in the camera. But I hope you semi-enjoy.
Leave a comment in the awesome discuss feature for me, and spread the word.

Cute Look.

Made up of the awesomeness that is The Park Jazz Band and the talent of Ms Novena “BabyStone” Carmel…. Zoowax releases their first video for their first single, “Nine to Five.” All about leaving the everyday life for your extraordinary dreams, this video is filmed partially at my favorite Jazz/Kickin It spot, Angel’s out on Wilshire and 26th. Loving it muchly. Zooming right past Retro and headed straight for 20s flapper girl, you know I’m going to love the old school theme behind this cute lil video. Play it for me and let me know what you think.

Not a whole lot to say here, other than Mary is awesome.
Even though its technically just Mary singing the hooks to Diddy and Weezy’s rapping, the beat and the attitude you pick up from this joint are a good indication that Mary is getting back to that old school stuff we love. Check out “Someone to Love Me” above and Enjoy.
