Hey all,

Though it may be seem a small accomplishment to many, it’s a great accomplishment to me – my post “Hurt people, hurt people.” has been viewed over a thousand times! Now, I know that many blogs get that kind of traffic in a hour’s time and it took me a few weeks…. but hey, a thousand is a thousand!

Been finding some great music lately and I thought I’d share what I’ve found with you. I’ll start with a fantastic saxaphonist named J. White.

J. is from Detroit, but currently resides in Arkansas where he completed his studies at the University of Arkansas. His current project is named “Melodies From My Heart” and you can hear samples from it HERE.

This is an outstanding work from an artist I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot from in the future. J. has a heartfelt lyrical style that shines on each track. My personal favorite is “Relaxation” which reminds me of Stevie Wonder back in the “Talking Book” days. You can hear a clip from that track – and BUY the CD at CDBaby.

I was thinking back to the old days in Detroit when the music scene was sooo vibrant, I began looking around for others who had memories of those old days and I ran across a great site full of information about things like the 20 Grand, Motown, and a lot of the smaller labels and studios back in the day. The site is called Soulful Detroit, and you can spend quite some time there remembering or learning about Detroit’s early musical days – Enjoy!

Oh, and for those of you who haven’t bought your copy of my new CD “The Late Show” – click HERE and get busy!

See ya.

Hey all,

I’ve been hard at work on the new CD, and I’m close to putting it together. I think I’ll call it a soundtrack CD, because it’s not just Smooth Jazz or any particular type of music. I’m not even really sure it won’t have vocals (not me).

Anyway I need some feedback on what to include on the CD, so when you get a chance go over to MakeTunes and have a listen. You can find all my stuff there at: Wendell’s Music

While you’re there check out the other artists’ music, I’m sure you’ll find something that you like.

See ya.

I found a great new site for music yesterday, it’s called MakeTunes  and it’s a place where people who have home studios can post their projects.

There is also a lot of information about home recording, and links to lots of free software. Anyone who is interested in recording their own music and even those who would just like to know more about how it is done should visit this site.

You can browse the music – you’ll find everything from rock to rap to classical – and most of it can be downloaded FREE.

If you join (also free) you can participate in the user’s forums and post comments on the music.

I found a great music sequencer program there called “Reaper” that has more features in it’s free version than all of the $399.00 programs that were out when I first started using MIDI to record…. back in the day.

I’ve been looking for sites where artists can present their music to the public without a lot of hassles and this site does just that (if you know of any others let me know).

I’ve placed several of my new works on this site and you can download them (in mp3 form) for free from there. Probably a good deal,  because when I release them in my new CD there will  be changes to them and you can boast about having the pre-release versions.

Go to the site, look around and if nothing else you’ll find my new stuff there – you might have to enter my name in the ‘search box’, Wendell L. Spencer.

Be adventurous and get off the beaten path, see what’s out there. Enjoy!

See ya.
