      Here's some rare Charlie "Bird" Parker worth listen to on Youtube
      Bird is smokin' ! (they could've left Buddy Rich the drummer out of this one) I'm not saying Buddy Rich couldn't play, he's just there to fulfill the racial politics.

      Sister Elisa, thanks for the heads up....

      I’m definitely going to pick up a CD by this Sister…Also, I’m going to look and listen through some of her other Youtube video performances.

      I remember reading about how Billie Holiday really related to a female flamenco singer, and could hear a common expression between her blues singing and flamenco. When I got the music video Flamenco I could really relate to what I heard. I have found that music, like other symbolisms and art speaks louder than any written words when it comes to what people share, or what common sources they have pulled from historically.

      raw flamenco is truly soul music. i dont realy care what their definition os "soul music" is, but for me is clear is music from the soul. lol.

      In fact, spanish traditional music, be it flamenco or jota (from my father's region) in its "Raw" form, truly reminds you of raw music from the the Sahara area. the kind of "mourning" song. straight from the pain of the heart.

      I remember one day i was watchina documentary that was showin some griot woman in Mali? and thought i was listening to flamenco. it was amazing.

      Sister it’s probably more than amazing, for it is the truth that cannot be denied…(smile)

      I have had this experience many times. I heard some music from a group of Moors in North Africa and it sounded exactly like music I had heard in the Black Baptist church, which when I was growing up, the congregation song mostly Spirituals, and people freely called out melodiously and painfully like they were shouting field hollers, much different than the modern Black gospel music of today. There is a very African sounding long drawn-out singing called Dr Watts, that are spine-numbing call and responses (almost drone like), that have been rarely recorded or heard outside of the old Black Baptist church services, that are so hauntingly spiritual and dig deep into the perpetual African spiritual essence of Black people that slavery never destroyed.

      Also, as far as a Flamenco and diasporic African (the southern US) comparison, there are certain field hollers, and shouts when men were usually working alone in the fields, or driving mules that sound very much like what I have heard in some Flamenco singing

      Let me also say this, as far as African influences in music throughout Europe and amongst the so-called Middle East. Many times African influence no matter how obvious, is either quickly dismissed, or the African is always deemed as the “receiver” of a common musical style and not the “giver” or originator.

      My challenge has always been to those who see Africans merely as insignificant or passive cultural contributors to another culture we came in contact with, or lived amongst, even if you place Africans as slaves or a lower class in a foreign culture, we were always used as an innovative resource or orchestrator for music, cooking, dancing, and spirituality at the minimum. We see this with the Creole and Cajun food in the kitchens of New Orleans, the first call to prayer by Bilal in Islam, or the development of the Rumba and Jazz in the so-called New World. Over and over again, when you listen first and then do the deeper research later, the evidence comes forth, though still denied and marginalized. This happen to the history of the Tango, until studies and books concerning the old African population of Argentina revealed the “pure” African origins of this music and dance; even so, rarely do historians or documentaries give Africans credit publicly for the Tango (not even a side note). This dance came directly from the original African quarters and sections in Argentina after slavery.

      I could go on…we must always use our intuitive “African way of knowing” and it will not only reveal the hidden truth, but will lead us to the many studies that confirm what we hear…

      well she looks sick because she's a strung out junkie (i.e. Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Jimmie hendrix, Janis Joplin, etc.) but her album is a certified classic and she will be anutha music matyr if she keeps sayin, "they try to make me go to rehab but i say no, no, no!
