From sweet and smooth classics, to new names, to old names with new music...the focus here, is to shine a little light on some damn fine music.

I'll find it. You can listen, review, or tell me I wouldn't know good music if it kicked me in the ass. I personally don't give a shit.

A Little Traveling Music Please

In a good mood this morning. Temperature is supposed to hit 70 here in the NY tri-state area. I'll take that any day of the year, on March's positively magnificent.

The taste today is someone I consider a very underrated singer-songwriter. Sure she's won four Grammy awards and has sold millions of albums, but except for a splash here and there..she's done it quietly.

Tracy Chapman burst onto the scene with a song called "Fast Car." Anyone who ever thought of walking out on a bad situation could identify with the storyline. Her vocal conveyed the desperation, hope and resignation.

With a wonderful quality and clarity in her voice, she is as smooth as a milk shake on a hot day. Take the time to drink it in.

"You're The One" so smooth
"Give Me One Reason"  with Eric Clapton...worth a taste right there

and the list would not be complete without...
"Fast Car"

It's a beautiful day, take a ride...with the top down of course.
