Looking forward to more!
One of a kind podcast. I find myself chiming in as if I’m in the room with these guys. Makes me feel like I’m chillin next to a fire pit sippin and listening to music.
The knowledge, history, particulars, technicalities, and pure passion for music. Blended and rolled up like the homies sipping some drank on the weekend. Kept me engaged. To adequately critique both positive and negatives, for personal opinions and preferences, of an album so profound as the swimming album was powerful to me. These dudes understood what seemed liked every faucet of music produced in the album. I found a pleasant surprise in hearing their personal relations and interpretations of meanings in key phrases and sounds on the records. I agree with the consensus of the group, No passion and musical gift should be delayed or “wasted”. Cheers!
Missing Jazz but love the Band
