Coming to you live and direct a most timely tribute to two greats Gil Scott-Heron and Oscar Brown Jr. The Originals Create(which is a project created by HeavyLight who we have featured here on GFM) are paying it forward with this soulful and introspective look back. With assistance from none other than Onaje Allan Gumbs on keys, we need this in our sonic atmosphere.
