Friday Flashback: Funkin’ for Jamaica #OldSchool

Warning: This song features a real singer with real musicians. No autotune. No synthesizers. No “DJ Samples”. Just original music, by real people with actual talent. This video was featured on MTV when it only featured music videos.

I love this song, Funkin’ for Jamaica (NY), by Tom Browne (circa 1981). It features 2 of my favorite instruments: The Trumpet and the Bass Guitar.

Never Stop – The Brand New Heavies

One of my favorite #OldSchool #AcidJazz tunes is Never stop.   Ms. N’Dea Davenport took The Brand New Heavies to new heights of success as the band’s lead singer and helped make this song a hit.  I’m so happy to see that she’s collaborating with the band again.
