Robert (@wanted_records) and I (@tis1971) gathered again on Sunday to play records and view the latest footage on our “Southern California” film project. Robert brought me a crate of LPs I had been wanting to find. Here, we play a few of those (including the excellent 19:17 minute cut from Jim Hall’s “Concierto”) as well as Robert’s recent set of 45s that he played at Fais Do Do in Los Angeles, for the 6th anniversary of “Club Soul Side”.
The weather outside was uncommonly stormy; appropriate for the records Robert and I were about to throw down.
The first track is from a children’s record named “Pretend To Be” by Steve Wienecke. Great for sampling.

Session Discovery Notes/Acknowledgements:
Doesn’t “Inch Worm” sound eerily like “Muskat Love” from Captain & Tennille? — Check out those keys and synths: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBYV_7a0FQs - Mashup Time?
Jim Hall’s, “Concierto De Aranjuez” was later covered in 1979, as a more triumphant version, on “1980″ from Herb Alpert’s “Rise” LP – Check it out if you don’t agree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9nwy0rQEA4g
The two Roy Ayers tracks remind me of going with Robert to a Roy Ayers + Pete Rock show at the Exchange in Downtown LA, Fall 2011. Pete Rock didn’t make the show – He was at a funeral service for Heavy D. Heavy D’s daughter goes to school with Robert’s son – Robert saw Heavy D a few times at school… Even went to a service at the school to honor Heavy D. Always a nice guy. We wondered if Pete Rock would show up when arrived at the Exchange and felt a more mellow vibe… Still, it was a great show, and Roy Ayers played all the mellow classics with his background crew. I ran into and hugged old friends that night… Nemencio (Reggae Pops) and DJ Seano (@djseano). Celebrating musical culture and togetherness in So Cal with Nemencio, and catching up with Seano, congratulating him on his KPFK show, and sharing memories of DJ Hideo (RIP)… It was a great night.
