I can dig it.
Two men after my own heart!!!!!
John Coltrane is my ultimate beloved muscian of this life. I was on Miles Davis, Bird Parker, Dizzy Gillespie too...but the more I'd listen to them all, the more he grabbed me, especially after Acknolwedgement and its instant power it added to the film "Mo Better Blues" (one of my favorites).
OOOO yall are sooo fly.... The pics are fiyah kwame! I was introduced to John Coltrame not too long ago (not in the physical, lol) and i think ive said it before on here but oh well... ill say it again... I love his work... Shoot i love jazz.. I been really vibing with it especially for the past few weeks. Thats the kind of music you need in ya life.
yes sista...BlackSolutely!!! there's music, then there's Coltrane!!!Originally Posted by Rebel Queen

I love our vibe in here. Its so Beautiful, man.
I had to edit my list..cuz I'm no hip hop girl. I am more the culture than the music. I respect and love some artists..but jazz and soul have my heart eternally.
I'm praciting being true to self in this season.... :cheers:
let me reply to this and then I will read all the posts and replay again... lolOriginally Posted by rebelafrika
rebelafrika, u stop stealin my preferences! lol... its like the homie has gone into my home and look into my albums.... well... at least u didnt name any non-rap albums so Ima add them...
lol, aight, yall too funny.
I know my list is very "typical" but those are the albums I never get tired of. I have met many artists and albums that I have absolutly loved n still love... but after some time (it can be weeks, months or years) the illusion decrease... It doesnt happen with lauryn, erykah and alicia, and even tho d'angelo and maxwell aint "my favourite artists of all time" I never get tired of these two albums,always perfect to sleep or take a shower and ben harper's Fight for your mind is perfect anytime lol
Well...since I can't pick 5 top albums, I'll pick 5 top artists of all time:
***EARTH, WIND, AND FIRE******
THE GAP BAND
Great topic, by the way
"Don't Let The World...Change Your Mind" ~~Maurice White Earth, Wind, and Fire ('Be Ever Wonderful'....'All 'N All ' album)
Earth, Wind & Fire - "ALL N ALL" - "Spirit" I love everything they made
until they became infiltrated by yt. The vibe went
down after that. My point exactly!
Isley Bros - "Summer Breeze" , "Fight The Power" , "Who's That Lady"
The Ojays - "Money, Money, Money" , "Ship Ahoy" , "Back Stabbers"
Tupac - "All Eyez On Me" , "Makavelli" , "2pocalypse"
James Brown - "I got something that makes you wanna shout, I got
something that tells you what it's all about, I got SOUL
and I'm Super Bad. I got it, I got it. I got SOUL and
I'm Super Bad"
"What we need, SOUL POWER, got to have it, SOUL
"SAY IT LOUD, I'M BLACK AND I'M PROUD"

i agree with all y'all so i'll try not to re-name anybody, but just gotta add on:
PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC (without whom many of those mentioned wouldn't even .. oh never mind)
and whatchall know about THE NEW BIRTH
or how about MANDRILL
ok that's five, but i hafta mention THE UNDISPUTED TRUTH and what naturally follows is LTD
Ummm... was Bob Marley, Fela, Linton Kwesi Johnson, or anybody int'l mentioned? If so, i'm sorry to reiterate the obvious!
oh yeah, and i love Jill dearly, but Erykah is just so much more revolutionary, fearless, experimental and funkadelic wid it that she holds my heart.

DAAAAG. Didn't even REALIZE I forgot Erykah in my list of beloveds up there!
Thanks NattyReb. ;-)
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE AND TOTALLY FORGOT TO MENTION MY ULTIMATE VOICE ..... LAURYN HILL.
SHE BLESSES ALL HER VOICE AND GUITAR-STRUMMING FINGERS TOUCH!
(listening to Carlos Santana, her and Cee Lo on the "Do You Like The Way" track bless the ENTIRE album sweetly, warmly, completely for me....)
yeeeeeesss! yall heard her last songs? well.. Im talkin about songs like Social drugs, Selah, and that one that goes like "if they only knew looove" its BEAUTIFUL! its her playin the guitar but with studio quality.
who else can rap as the best male rapper, sing as the best soul singer and talk as the best revolutionary poet? that's my girl!
