I feel, hear and see what you’re saying my brother. i live in belize as a child and left in the aftermath of hurricane janet in 1961. u have to live through something like that to appreciate what went down in new orleans. the difference for us in belize is that the racism is not as immediately lethal as in the u.s.a

Been meaning to get into MeShell for a while (can’t do everything!) so thanks for this brief intro. (I know, I should have been connected here long ago.) Like her singing; not so keen on the backing – seems a bit too fussy for the song, which should be loud and clear – louder and clearer. (I saw Gene McDaniels stop a Rock concert dead in 1962, singing “Spring is here”.)

I’m listening now to the Blanchard – ANOTHER I haven’t got round to yet (though I thought I had something as a sideman but can’t track it/them down)and so yet another thanks (good week this). I think I could live with some Blanchard albums. Perhaps not this one to start off with – perhaps something more conventional. Any ideas?

Lunchime, so I’ll quit for a while after “Mantra” finishes.
