Ahem.... :(
Winter is back this AM it is snowing with 2" predicted and an additional 1" overnite  >:(
We have snow in the forecast every day through the weekend, but highs will be above freezing so there shouldn't be much accumulation.

Boy did I speak too soon. There's a foot on the ground right now, with another 3-6" forecast through tomorrow.

Beautiful Spring Day In The ROCKIES!

We had Gospel
We had Blues
We had Soul.
We had Funk.

Now we have Rap  ???

Four outta five ain't so bad I guess.

Man I enjoy James Brown!  Thanks for the bump Denny!

Ah now, don't hate. Grandmaster Flash is the gateway drug from Funk/Soul into Rap:

Then listen to some of the stuff Mos Def/Talib Kwali are putting out these days. Or just some Beastie Boys.

Hate?  I think not.  What makes you think I haven't listened?

I will say I like the vocal percussion used by tabla players.  I also prefer the lyrical content (comprised only of the bols, or names of the drum strokes):

James Brown was a crazy sucker (read "Hit Me Fred" by his long time bandleader Fred Wesley for an amusing recollection), but he pioneered funk, that's for sure.

He laid a very nice foundation.
