Self Taught Disciple
I'm so glad I did'nt give it all away on the first album; 'Out Of Obscurity', now I'm back with a more foot stomping Urban R'n'B contemporary joint which shows another side of me-- the side that likes to play alot and explore different ideas and concepts of rhythm and rhyme I was abit unsure of some songs but as time elapsed, I found that those moves were necessary to balance this project. I trust you will enjoy these 12 skeletons I drew out of obscurity. 'Self Taught Disciple' is a 25th anniversary celebration of self study in music and yet I am still a disciple of it. I have now completed the next album which will be titled 'The Third Mic' with tracks like 'O Peter', a negro spiritual with a modern super bowl mix (O you won't believe that!); An animated soul dance called 'Good to me'(something to bang in your buick or in the clubs, mos def; 'Set freedom', an 80's gogo and 90's swing with a touch of Jazz and some interesting sounds along with a 'life, liberty and in the pursuit of those who would try and take it away', 'let freedom ring' to it. An old school R'n'B classic style joint called 'Beautiful' (something you can R'n'R or bounce to. And the rest, well you're just gonna have to wait for it don't ya? Some of my people are saying to me 'not so fast, you've just released the second one' but I beg to differ. If they had been through as many disappointments and delays, broken promises and betrayals, they would wanna be as fast as I am plus I have had alot of sell-by-date ideas over the past ten or so years I now have to cook, fry and bake for the next project. I have never had the opportunity to do so many songs like this in my home country, that's why I love where I am.(written on July 4th 2003). I am also grateful for this long over due connection called CDBABY.NET where my CDs can be exposed to the World. Derek, where have you been all my life? Thank you! Hey I'm just keeping it real!
