Oldie Jams and Contemporary Noise (June 2012)

This is a column I plan to write monthly to chronicle the music I’m listening to for a given month. Hopefully these lists will contain songs that readers might not be familiar with by music legends, and introduce them to new artists with an enticing sound. Without further ado: 

Omen – An up and coming rapper from Chicago of thoughtful expression and lyrical precision

Aloe Blacc – Exceptional soul musician with an emphasis on the everyday things we take for granted

Clifford Brown and Max Roach – Some of the greatest jazz legends of all time, killing it

James Brown – The late, great hardest working man in show business telling us about a dream
