My local sports talk station's afternoon drive time host has used Gil Scott Heron as bumper music coming back from break on two different days

"Winter In America" is the one my local jazz station plays the most--pretty much year-round during Trump term. xpostYeesh, sorry for typos!

i keep hoping every time i go into cvs that i'll hear "johannesburg" or maybe "the bottle" — alas no, just aztec camera `oblivious` yet again (no, seriously!).

Their theme song--oblivious to Gil, for inst.

xxp isn't Bridges is still around? I got a new copy of it on CD a year or so ago, on the UK imprint Soul Brother Records.

"Your Soul and Mine" and Revolution are in the Sopranos movie... but don't bother!

Just wanna rep for ‘Real Eyes’ much underrated

I'm a firm believer that all of his albums up to and including Moving Target are at least four stars. Hard to really single out any from such a consistent run, but Real Eyes has some definitive highlights for sure.

everything with Brian Jackson is sheer brilliance, don’t know much of anything after

no comment on “I’m new here” or whatever it is

six months pass...

thanks for posting. he seems like a chill person these days and that jazz is dead thing is definitely cool and worth checking out.

checking this out now. first song sounds like vintage midnight band.

Oh cool!

so the rest of the album is really good! nothing surprising or groundbreaking happens, but it's a foregone conclusion that if you like classic midnight band, you'll like this too. maybe a bit preachy in spots — again: very reminiscent of vintage material. still lots of good vibes and solid grooves. last track was the highlight for me.

I was a bit underwhelmed by the Brian Jackson effort. Some was funky & jazzy like old-school Midnight Band but some was too derivative, a little too fusiony, and the vocals aren't Scott-Heron of course.

i dug the album. i really like his playing and the groove on "mami wata" in particular
