Happy 96th birthday ‘Queen’ Ella Fitzgerald!

Happy 96th birthday Ella Fitzgerald

Hello World,
Although music changes as the years progress, I can never forget the sound of JAZZ. Jazz gives me a vision of life. The jazz sounds of the guitars/string instruments, drums, pianos and horns/wind instruments are so dynamic either together or on their own.

Jazz music paints a picture that either brings a smile to my face or it allows my abstract thoughts to run and be free. Jazz soothes and massages my stress away while at the same time JAZZ allows my creative juices to simmer and produce ART! SO!! I SAY ALL OF THAT TO SAY THIS!!

Happy 96th birthday ‘Queen’ Ella Fitzgerald!
Ella’s infectious smile and her jazzy voice are truly captivating. She represents a special era. A era of class.

The classic duets she did with artist like Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and many others are priceless. Ella's influence is still strong... I hear artist like, (MY GIRL) Chrisette Michele and I even remember the first time I listened to Queen Latifah's jazz cd... I smiled and thought of Ella.

Ella although you are gone, you are never forgotten. 

PRESS PLAY and enjoy the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald!

Q.U.E.E.N Janelle Monae & Erykah Badu... (bow down)

Hello World!
Spring is in the air!! The sun is shining, warm temperatures are caressing my skin and I am feeling like a QUEEN!!

I am rocking hard to the song called, Q.U.E.E.N. by Janelle Monae AND Erykah Badu. I AM IN LOVE WITH Q.U.E.E.N.

The guitar grabs you by your face, the synthesizer sounds accompanied with that sophisticated funk is so refreshing to hear. That Prince-like style makes you want to dance along with the voices of Janelle and Erykah... THIS IS A HIT! The voices on this track! full of  SASS and SPUNK! I mean we are talking about Janelle and Erykah! AND let's not forget the MESSAGE in the song!

I love a HOT track with a MESSAGE.

This song is perfect for the spring time!

Don't throw shade... BUT this track makes you want to put your shades on, smile real big, close your eyes and twirl in the sunshine to this one!!

You can purchase this track on itunes (of course I downloaded my copy)
