We are coming to the end of the summer. Big sigh. The next couple of weeks, while we anticipate the demo and the remixes after that, I’ll post some “extra references.”

Going back to the 60’s was ideal. I am a Gen X and I was influenced by a lot of musicians who were influenced by the 60’s. I discovered Sam Manning when I went back to the origins of rock and roll. Before black Americans precipitated rock and roll with the jump blues, there was a period where blacks in the Carribean performed dance music which was influenced by jazz and calypso.

I play the piccolo guitar. Sam played the Cuatro.
