.#SoulTrain the hippest trip in America 60 non stop mins into the exciting world of SOUL #withgueststars #ArethaFranklin, #RonnieDyson & the #SoulTrainDancers episode 197. Nov 13th 1976 the 13th episode of season 6 #QueenAretha #QueenOfSoul @arethasings


Hands down MAJOR epic week on @FallonTonight. This @Jlo/@JanetJackson episode was hella epic. s/o to @DYesteFanny for letting his 2 biggest fans take a photo w him! watch 2nite!


I know the timing couldn’t have been weirder but happy birthday #Madonna.


The 3 seconds it takes for #ArethaFranklin to oooooze out the words “Sittin around..” is as pure & creative & as honest as any singer I’ve ever seen when a performance goes beyond mere entertainment. THIS is what we need to get back to. where raw genius rises above marketing strategy & monetary reach & “likes” (because let’s face it, look at the Billboard singles/Spotify singles/ITunes singles—-could she even find space to develop this talent? Or just give up & get a reality show and pray this works out? Now figure out the legions of talent that we either dismissed or passed on today or even the mesmerizing talent we’ve been shown near this level that can’t even begin to thrive in this environment without some angle) for those not in the know & wanna know, with the exception of her yet to be seen Sidney Pollack documentary Amazing Grace (her best captured 2 hours 1972 in chu’ch, in her zone in south central Los Angeles—-w The Rolling Stones sitting IN THE DECON SECTION)—-this Performance at the #MontreuxJazzFestival in 71 is as good as it gets: as a singer, as a bandleader (midshow she calls an audible and the brass section just gives up playing & accepts they are just happy to have best seats in the house), as a piano player—-so underrated!—and the fact she has her ace band in tow too (#KingCurtis as MD & #BernardPurdie on drizzums)—-this is her most magical effortless skillful scientific talents on display. Long Live #QueenAretha.

. #SoulTrain the hippest trip in America. Sixty nonstop minutes into the exciting world of #SOUL #withgueststars #Labelle, #CreativeSource & the #SoulTrainDancers ep 154. October 18th 1975 the 9th episode of the 5th season.


This invitation marks #HIPHOP’s 45th Birthday.
This enabled the funk to reach the masses. This enabled poets to find a new lease on life. This enabled the DJ to be as important a musician as a saxophonist or guitarist. This enabled artists and designers and photographers and directors and stylists and dancers and nightclub owners to stretch and redefine creativity. This assured James Brown would be immortal. This guaranteed Curtis Mayfield’s messages would carry on. This flier gave power.
Hip Hop was born FORTY FIVE years ago today. Amazing man #HipHopIs45 spread that tag y’all. Talk about hip hop.


Perhaps 39 years ago this coulda been the cover of #OffTheWall 😎 Aug 10, 1979 MJ grew up.
