Here & Now recordings

The site seems to be bubbling along nicely with a few great mixes already so thanks to everyone for contributing. Word has it that there is a much anticipated Good Friday mix brewing as we speak...

A word on links: I don't want to over-run this site with links to other music but if you have a gem that you think others shouldn't miss out on then please let me know and i'll add a link. Here is a link to one of ion's friends; 'JC' who runs a label called Here & Now Recordings. Lots of great jazz and house artists seem to record for the label and he has a radio show that is definitely worth a listen. So here goes...enjoy

Also couldn't not mention the 'SoulPower' movie that I watched the other day. If you haven't seen it then look it up. A concert was put on prior to the Rumble in the Jungle between Ali and Foreman with acts like James Brown, B.B. King, Fania Allstars and a really powerful vocal display from Bill Withers. All original footage and some great moments in it. My personal favourite is watching a barechested Withers, poolside, calmly tucking into his breakfast while an entourage surround Ali to hear him wax lyrical. Gold.

have a good week all and in the words of the 'Mack' "easy does it"
