  4. This dude makes me want to be a producer. 

    Love his music soooo much. One of my favorites.

    If you ask José James, hip-hop is an extension of jazz music. The 33-year-old singer grew up listening to the typical ’90s mix of  A Tribe Called Quest and the Beastie Boys—”I had the CDs, they had all the samples clearances on them… that’s how I got into Joe Henderson, Thelonius Monk,” he explains. “For me, jazz was always a cool thing  that I associated with Ali Shaheed Muhammad and it was only later that I realized, ‘No one else listens to jazz who’s my age.’ “ 

    With No Beginning and No End, James’ third album and first with Blue Note Records, he is trying to reconnect the two genres. If jazz music today is divided into “easy listening” and “esoteric,” James is neither. He is not a hip-hop artist, but unlike his crooner contemporaries, his songs such as “It’s All Over Your Body” and “Sword + Gun” do not need to be framed by rap verses to feel cool. “I want to be a contemporary artist,” James emphasizes. “I’m trying to find ways to mix in all kinds of music, and not be pigeonholed.”

    James is excited when we meet him and his wife, Nicola, at the W Downtown in New York. The Minneapolis-born, Brooklyn-based musician wants to talk about legendary bassist Pino Palladino, who, after working on a single song with James, decided to co-produce No Beginning and No End. Palladino’s involvement is a good sign; he’s produced some of James’ favorite albums, such as D’Angelo’s Voodoo, as well as one of the world’s favorite albums, Adele's 21. “He just takes the musicianship to another level,” says James.

  14. New moon and it’s 12.12.12. Keep cool my babies.

    "The Moon is in Sagittarius all day and is Balsamic, as a New Moon will occur early into the day tomorrow. With a Sagittarius Moon, we can feel a stronger desire for change, action, and adventure, and we can experience some restlessness. It’s a better time for taking extra rest, reflection, detoxification, letting go, and review of the past rather than for beginning entirely new endeavors, which are likely to be premature. New interests, focus, and information are likely to surface after the New Moon. However, we can tap into our intuition today in order to consider the path we would like to take."

     

  15. Alejandro Sanz- Cuando Nadie Me Ve

    Te escribo desde los centros de mi propia existencia
    Donde nacen las ansias, la infinita esencia
    Hay cosas muy tuyas que yo no comprendo
    Y hay cosas tan mias, pero es que yo no las veo
    Supongo que pienso que yo no las tengo
    No entiendo mi vida, se encienden los versos
    Que a oscuras te puedo, lo siento no acierto
    No enciendas las luces que tengo desnudos,
    El alma y el cuerpo
