Let The Good Times Roll

Time is running. It is time for a new mix with good music with soul, funk, jazz and beyond. An eclectic selection of new music, percussion tracks, lost but not forgotten rare songs. And there is the new song in two versions by Chic feat. Nile Rodgers in the mix. Join me into the world of sounds.

We starting the journey in New Orleans. JD McPherson released a new album and one of his most icons in music has been Fats Domino. EPHEMERALS are a London based soul team featuring an all star cast of musicians. Chassol is a really amazing french composer. He is mixing and sampling different styles to a wonderful world music melange. Sarah Vaughan sings about the mystery of man. What a voice. Tuscan beat maker C. Crisci, a.k.a Clap! Clap! bringing you Afro-trappism‘ sampling tribes. Then you can listen to new songs from Curtis Harding, Hanni El Khatib, Belle and Sebastian, Gregory Porter, Antonio Sanchez, D’Angelo from his masterpiece „Black Messiah“, the wonderful Melanie De Biasio and Kate Tempest and many, many more.

Then you find a lot of songs with percussion. The reason why I selected the songs is simple: the amazing soundtrack from the movie „Birdman“. Finally Nile Rodgers released yesterday the new song „I´ll Be There“. But I selected for the mix the funky and groovy instrumental version with the Martinez Bros..
Now let the music do the talking and let the good times roll.

Stay tuned. Listen. Relax, Enjoy!

Nile Rodgers: „#‎WorldPremiere‬!! ‪#‎IllBeThere‬ is a moving concept for me about decisions we make in life. We’ve tried to capture all the nuances in the full length video and still keep it fun. Karlie Kloss connects the past and present. She sees the original group (who plays this track) on Soul Train. She, visualizes the past looking at old school vinyl – then gets dressed and goes out to a current party to meet up with Stephen Galloway and the current ‪#‎CHIC‬ lineup happens to be playing live. I’m very thankful to be debuting it exclusively w Music on Facebook to the world. Here it is. I hope you like it.“

Silent Night

Christmas 2014
For the second time I created for Christmas and the silent night a quiet music mix. Mainly ballads and instrumentals, sometimes melancholic, nevertheless brave, quiet, but with emotional power. For all who are maybe alone or coming back late at home, zapping through the channels, to come down, to enjoy the mood of a quiet night. It is a mix for all who wants to listen to silent music but not to Christmas music: this is a special selection of silent songs for the night or for the wee small hours.

Zum zweiten Mal habe ich ruhige Musik für die Stille Nacht zusammen gestellt. Hauptsächlich Balladen und Instrumentalstücke, die manchmal melancholisch sind, gleichwohl mutig, ruhig und mit emotionaler Kraft. Musik für alle die vielleicht allein sind, spät zurück nach Hause kommen, durch die Kanäle zappen um herunter zu kommen, die besondere Stimmung der Nacht geniessen. Es ist ein Mix für all jene die ruhige Musik hören möchten, jedoch keine Weihnachtsmusik. Musik für die späten Abendstunden oder die frühen Morgenstunden.

Listen. Relax, Enjoy!

Let me still say thank you for your support and kindness for taking the time to read and follow my articles. A very Happy Christmas to you. May it be full of peace and joy.
Ganz herzlichen Dank für die Untersützung und Aufmerksamkeit, allen die sich die Zeit genommen haben meine Artikel zu verfolgen. Habt schöne, besinnliche, friedliche und frohe Weihnachten.
