Visions of the Prince!!

Color Visions by Roland Prince sports help from Bob Cranshaw and Frank Foster. More details are here http://www.discogs.com/Roland-Prince-Color-Visions/release/1740886, if interested. I am normally not much of a sucker for jazz guitarists. However, Roland ranks up there with Grant Green, Wes, and G. Benson...at least I like to think so. I love the free and smooth-psyche style this album has and have found a couple breaks here and there for a more unusual taste of samples. I know it isn't THAT rare of a drop since it's available on iWhore, but I have yet to see it posted on another blog so I wish to share it. Cool?

I also want to ask of you for any requests of albums or genres that you may want/ need. God only knows what I have in my collection and I am more than willing to share. Just shoot a comment and tell me what you are digging for and I may have it to post once I return from vaca. All hail to The Prince

  6. i have some live jazz i dug upon last december. unexpectedly funky stuff since its 21st century stuff. have to upload it. i felt like a jerk after writing that post because only 1 or 2 tracks was on super brakes and then i saw vol. 1 and 2 right after i said that. definitely looking for lucky seven by james though, look-alike melts me heart everytime

  7. Here's a live set of the Kurt Elling Quintet. i was listening to Golden Lady and some grooviness was pulsating from my speakers, if you can get around the john mayor-e vocals. Recorded live sometime in 2011
