Growing up in during days when real artists made real music has made me a fan of th old school for life. One of my favorite soul legends is Patrice Rushen. That was/is a bad woman! Patrice's contributions to music via her solo projects as well as her writing and instrumentation for other notable artists is impressive. If you are trying to get a party started, put on some classic Patrice. Tracks like "Forget Me Nots" and "Haven't You Heard" would even make a man with no legs get up and shake a tailfeather!

Truthfully, if you don't have any Patrice Rushen in your music collection, it's not complete. If you asked Prince (His-Purple-Badness) about Patrice, he'd tell you the same thing too dammit! So, if you haven't already, I suggest that you hit up Amazon and step your soul music game way up. You owe it to yourself.

Well, it's music time again, so get your headphones ready...

I was playing around with some old school tracks the other day, and I decided to record my session for a mixx I titled "RearViewingSoul" definitely put ears on it. There are some soul samples thrown up in there too.
