Now Playing: On Vinyl
Chet Baker: In New York
Listen to: Blue Thoughts
Listening to the radio these days leaves me nostalgic for the good ‘ole days. The lack of originality, musicality and concept is heartbreaking if you’re a true music lover.
Think about it. When’s the last time you said to yourself: I’ve gotta buy that album?
The reason why someone like Adele sells a bazillion albums is because people are starving for originality and soul-stirring music.
So, I’ve been listening to old school classics on vinyl courtesy of my portable turntable. Music produced when you didn’t need a video or a Grammy Awards performance to convince people that it’s worthy. There’s sleek Jazz (I’m obsessed with Chet Baker) mixed with sexy Pop/Rock and groovy get-you-moving R&B because now that Spring has arrived it’s important we get the mood just right.
