Why don't we hear Taj Mahal's name on the news and TMZ and the daily news every day? Well, let's just google that question right now. But in the meantime, I must share this gem I found on my own harddrive. I am honored to say that I had the privilege of meeting Taj Mahal in Kansas City, Missouri in 1975 at the Broadway out front afterwards in his RV, where he graciously offered us some greens he had cooked himself. Awesome man, awesome experience, and thank you for the music, #TajMajal.
Love,

"michelle singing songs" by Michelle Shaprow

The simple title of this video "michelle singing songs" is appropriate and makes me hopeful that some new mucic might be forthcoming. Being a long-time fan of Michelle Shaprow, her song came up in rotation from my library. Yes, now I get inspiration from my own library, LOL. 

Granny (me) does not remember how I first came to know Michelle's music, but when I found Michelle on Myspace, she was so personable.  I even tried to set her up with my son who was single at the time. Michelle was so nice to me that she personally sent songs for inclusion on my station, "Funk Sanctum Radio" by djGoddessa. And now, even though I am retired from streaming, I still receive updates on my favorite musicians through my YouTube subscription. Actually, you should subscribe to my YouTube channel: Grangoddessa on YouTube.

 
How did I find this video this morning?  Well, actually someone repinned one of my Michelle Shaprow pins this morning on Pinterest, so that jogged my memory. It is all connected and we are all connected!  :)

Monique Bingham and Black Coffee "Deep in the Bottom (of Africa)" OFFICIAL video


MONIQUE BINGHAM has been responsible for some of the most poignant house music of the past two decades.  And this tune with Black Coffee "Deep in the Bottom" does not disappoint.

This is Ms. Monique Bingham live that I shared here on this blog.

This is Monique Bingham's website.

This is an excerpt of her biography:
"Monique Bingham has been responsible for some of the most poignant, soulful jazz-infused house music of the past 20 years. Her career began with the acid jazz band Abstract Truth in 1995 at Francois K‘s legendary Axis studios. The first single, “Get Another Plan” received international critical acclaim and was picked up by Gilles Peterson for his UK imprint, “Talkin Loud” in ‘96. The follow up single, “We Had a Thing” penned and performed by Monique, is an indisputable soulful house classic due in large part to Matthias Matty Heilbronn’s infectious house remix.
