Innernational Jazz Mixtape vol. 2 | Sound Travels Oct. 9th 2016


Living the Highlife


Coming Home is the one-stop primer, the keyhole that unlocks Thomas’ broad body of work. From his early days in the Broadway Dance Band, Marijata, the Sweet Beans and other incarnations and evolutions. The “Golden Voice Of Africa,” Coming Home offers listeners a chance to get to know Thomas’ career in one neat, if not totally complete package. Definitely one of the best compilations of 2016 and a must for world music and African music diggers.

Two Sound Travels Mixes… | September 2016


…as this weekend I stayed true to my promise and had a mix of 70’s era Brazilian samba soul sounds that finds the funk in more than a few ways. Rare grooves are in abundance on this mix that I’m still grooving on. Unfortunately, I somehow deleted the playlist I made to make the mix so even though the mix stands, I’m not one hundo on what I actually fit into this hour-long exploration. Enjoy!
