Fling Chune FRIDAY: Conversation Piece

Hap-hap-happy Friday to one and all!  Just wanted to slide thru and fling a chune for you really quickly.

The vibe on deck is 'smooth'... smooth jazz, to be exact.  Like dancehall to classic reggae, or nouveau flamenco to classic flamenco/Spanish guitar, smooth jazz is the younger, funkier sibling of classic jazz.  There's nothing like riding on an instrumental groove that makes you bob your head like a bass guitar player... and that's who is being featured today.

Wayman Tisdale was a former NBA star-turned-musician; unfortunately, he passed away from cancer in 2009.  But his music definitely lives on in smooth jazz pieces like this one.  I first discovered his music back in 2005 on MSN music (an online radio service that was an early predecessor to Pandora), and I've been hooked ever since.

So enjoy the groove and let it take you right on out into the weekend!

be blessed!
