Sunday coming down

Hey everyone, hoping that you are all Β having a great day and if you’re not – if the world is too much for you as it sometimes is these days, then come away with me, sit back and relax to the smooth sounds I’ve put together for you. As Autumn sheds her copper colours and slithers into wintry nights here in the South or when your Summer night cools a sunny day, join my jazzy room and enjoy my indulgence in the sultry sounds of Sade or the other great musicians whose names begin with the letter “S” Β Make every day count this week! πŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸŽˆπŸ’«πŸ’«βœ¨πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’žπŸ’«βœ¨πŸŽˆπŸŽˆ

Sunday coming down

As Sunday comes down, I send Mother’s day greetings to all mothers including those who fullfill their nurturing role in other ways. While our temperature is rapidly falling, let the love temperature rise in your hearts. Here’s wishing you an awesome week and hope you’ll enjoy my selection of musicians from the R&B and Smooth Jazz genre whose names begin with “R” You are welcome to add to the list. Have a blast ! πŸŒΉπŸŽˆπŸŽˆβœ¨πŸŽˆπŸ’«πŸ’«

The love of a mother

thumb_IMG_5806_1024

I made this for you

Who have not nursed a child

Though mother to all

 

Who held up a torch

When I tripped in the dark

You guided my way

 

You were born for this

To pick up the broken parts

Make them whole again

 

Your little bundle

Is wrapped in those of us

Whose lives cross your path

 

For the love of a mother

Can be in one woman to another

 

( A special dedication to special women in my life on mother’s day)

Sunday coming down

Dear Friends

Hope you are all having a great Sunday and when your sun comes down, hope you will join me in winding down the weekend and easing into a blissful week ahead. I’m looking at the sun coming down on beautiful Autumn shades and cooling temperatures after a wonderful sunny day. Today’s line up of songs come from musicians whose names begin with Β “Q”. I couldn’t find too many of those in the R&B and smooth genre so I’ve added a few more songs from the same artists. First up is the sassy and voluptuous Queen Latifah, otherwise known asΒ Dana Elaine Owens. I found some gems that I thought fitted in very well for that Sundowner – whatever your flavour. Then there is no leaving out the great Quincy Jones whose name as producer and songwriter is attached to so many great artists, including many big hits with the late great Michael Jackson. Featured here are a number of well musicians who have performed with Quincy Jones. Finally, meet Quintin Gerard W. and Enjoy!!! πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸ’«πŸŽˆπŸŽˆβœ¨β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβœ¨βœ¨βœ¨πŸŽˆ
