Slums of Beverly Hills was one of my favorite movies as a kid.
The Derek Jeter and Jordan Brand “RE2PECT” commercial has been all over my timelines today and I completely understand why. The commercial is great! It’s moving, several celebrity cameos, and it’s a really nice tribute to Jeter.
I learned about Valerie June a few months ago while searching for new music on Spotify. I fell in love with her voice and style after hearing Pushin’ Against A Stone. This song, Workin’ Woman Blues, is my current jam (the trumpet just does something to me)!
The great Trinidadian-born pianist Hazel Scott was born on this day in 1920. One of my favorite things about her? Her hands were once insured by Lloyds of London. My other thing is this quote: “Any woman who has a great deal to offer the world is in trouble. And if she’s a black woman, she’s in deep trouble.”
