Back once again to stretch, share and expand vibrations, positive buoyancy,  encourage, uplift and provoke thought while loving the creators, honoring the masters and blessing those with a thirsty ear for quality sonic experiences. JAZZ MUSIC!!! And to coin a phrase from our President, “Let Me Be Perfectly Clear”, mediocracy, redundancy and popularity are prohibited in exchange for a proclivity of pristine, progressive, organic, quality jazz music!

The dance of helix is always on the RISE! Matter in a Sphere of space, harmony, rhythm and implication all center around this faint beacon reaching the nocturnal Universe through the Morris Code of sonic pulsation.

Trading sets of beauty!

The first order of business is a visit from the ladies from Leimert Park!!!!
