Whispers by The True Reflection
So less than 2 hours ago I was 80 or so miles away from home. I was weaving through traffic and pushing 95 mph to get home with enough time to post this week’s BeatSession. I had six guests packed into my one-bedroom apartment for the long memorial day weekend. The weekend was filled with good drinks, good food, and even better company. Despite the busy schedule, we managed to find time to check out this diggin’ spot that I’ve never been to (Yesterday and Today Records). Their dollar bin selection wasn’t that extensive, but I managed to cop some Ahmad Jamal, Roberta Flack, and some Vanilla Fudge. If any of y’all are in the Miami or Orlando area, make sure to hit me up — there’s a ton of spots i haven’t hit up yet.
Anyways, this week’s sample comes True Reflection’s 1973 album, Where I’m Coming From. This soulful quartet recorded just one album, but it is an amazing album which I think we’ll be revisiting in future sessions.
Thanks for participating and listening each week and make sure you tune in next week for our tribute to Gil Scott Heron who passed away this past weekend.
