    Well, it’s been some time since I’ve been on the air at lunch time. Usually, I’m shuffling around the bucolic Uncle Phil hacienda with a cup o’ joe and a newspaper in my hands at noon … me being a night owl and all that. The Limey needed a sub for his noon show though, so I volunteered to take one for the team ๐Ÿ™‚ Damn, it takes me awhile to get my stuff together in the morning but once the coffee kicked in and the wheels of steel started to spin I got in the game and was having fun.

    The show began and ended with two very different kinds of music, yet both songs featured the human voice as the main instrument.

    ‘We’ opened with Sheila Chandra performing a piece from her album, ‘Quiet"

    This piece is very structured, cerebral and polished to a high sheen. It takes one to a quiet, delicate place. The show ended with Sugar Minott toasting, inna DJ stylee.

    This time the production is rough and raw (live?) and the vocals are spur of the moment off-the-cuff. The place that it takes you to is one with a lot of movement and power.

    Both Chandra’s and Minott’s vocals are, in effect, just ‘sounds’ to our ears, not ‘words’ (unless you can cut your way through Minott’s heavy Jamaican patois). Basically, the meaning of the vocals are not the point of the music. I like it like that. We can make the music into anything that we may imagine.
