Check out Javelin tomorrow at the Prospect Park Bandshell!
Going to see Hugh in concert tonight! Happy summer solstice Friday all.
The onset of summer heat has me listening to a lot of old favorites, like this: “Waiting for You” by Tony! Toni! Toné! from the Poetic Justice soundtrack.
Wow. Sweet little Lauryn Hill, age 13, singing at the Apollo’s Amateur Night. Doesn’t she look just the same! She had a lot going on for a little girl, but still a bit shakey on the vocals. So cool to see her unique sound and style at that age.
And now that I’ve spent forever in a YouTube spiral, here’s one beautiful song from her MTV Unplugged performance in 2002 to see her older, wiser self on stage.
Not sure why but I’m appreciating this old classic a bit more than usual this week. Hoagy Carmichael plays “Stardust.”
Bonnie’s still got it. “Take My Love With You” from her most recent album, Slipstream.
(Thanks to J. Kuhn for the tip on this!)
This song has me under its spell. “Sierra Lift” by Blue Hawaii.
