KillgoreTrout On March - 29 - 2014

American music would be sort of bland without the enormous contributions made by African-Americans throughout our history. No real Jazz and no Blues and certainly no Soul music.

This weekend’s music thread is all about the wonderful influence that Afro-Americans have had and still have on music. So pick your favorites from any genre of music by the many, many very talented and expressive Afro-American musicians and singers. As always, don’t forget to smile while doing so! 😉

    This was really fun KT, too bad I had to leave early, a veritable treasure trove of excellent music. I enjoyed watching many of the videos, see you again next weekend. :)

    • I’m glad you enjoyed the thread Monica. I’m always happy to see people post their favorites and and how they appreciate the music posted by others.

      We do this every weekend, and you are always welcome. You had some great picks.

        I really wasn’t able to devote my full attention to the thread this past session, I will try to schedule a bit more time next weekend. I must say that even though I did register and sign up to become a member of PP, I never really devoted much time to the site. It’s amazing the work you guys put in here. I didn’t realize what I was missing, great site, and wonderful people contributing here. Thanks for your hard work.

    There are so many great songs by African Americans, this one is wonderful because of the father and sons . . .
