Hey…Oscar Brown Jr. Died. Who the heck is he, you ask? Well, that’s an interesting question. He was an amazingly influential jazz musician, actor, political activist…and somehow, even given my whitebread upbringing, I’m the only person who know who he is.
Someone PLEASE pay hommae to this artist and go download “Forbidden Fruit” or “Mr. Kicks.” There’s no other way to describe them except that they are complete classics. Original, interesting. Ajnd while you’re at it, try out
“Bid 'em in” which is actually disturbing, but as I said…has something to say and is very powerful.
Sometimes I feel like no one properly misses him. Please, prove me wrong!
