words.

a random peace music love out of my shelves for you .
music is the healing force - too much madness goin on in this world of today.

including two very long versions excursions, yes , why not?
from the tune by richard evans that is basically saying all in nearly 7 minutes to deep afrojazz spirituality
and reggae into heavy freedom jazz dance taking it to the islands and beyond finishing off with a love supreme.

next week more new and forthcoming music.
it keeps comin' in nicely. somuch talent out there.
feeling blessed sometimes.

enjoy ! michael
