A sound delicate and deliberate, a groove rooted in African soil, a story told nightly at 6, 9, 10 and 11 for the decades of our lives. Society and the life that we live here as Kings of art, music, culture, dance, invention, sport, entertainment, education and the likes fail to uphold the beauty as a whole and tend to suppress, intimidate or try to eradicate a power and spirt that is omnificent.

Inside perspectives that come to shining light fruition, in the eye of the cyclone, calm, loving and peaceful with a tumultuous exterior. Joshua White and his extraordinary band delivers a multitude of sensation at the 9th Annual Angel City Jazz Festival.


Southern Cop was based on a poem by Sterling Brown poet and Los Angeles legend and vocal pipeline to the stars Dwight Trible delivers the narrative and connecting heaven and earth through ascending sonics.

From poem, to a spiritual to soul twisting fate, we are all at the mercy of the whims of the melody. Lifted, emersed and delivered unscathed by the crash, the lessons in the music are full of truth, tragedy and love. There is no turning off the picture, no turning the other way, you must feel and become the sound like one drop of crimson in a pot of purity that stains, leaving us all with the Blues.

Undoubtedly one of the most talented and creative musicians of our times. Don’t sleep on this giant because guaranteed there are new paths carved in the music. Follow the footsteps now and be a part of the discovery, or wait and get on the train everyone else, either way, your future will be enlightened!!!
