Hey! Yes you over there… I’m talking to you! What are you waiting for? I don’t care where you are when you see this post, you need to get up off your and well jam!!! Do you hear the freedom in this music? Our AOM and crew had successfully synthesized all of the music that developed from as Donny Hathaway so eloquently put it “The Black Pool of Genius”. This is what Freedom sounds like to me and in taking a cue from the album titled that this track is culled from, I’m going to take a few padlocks off my psyche today. Enjoy!
