Happy 2018 to everyone! This is not per say something I needed to write. Just saw it as appropriate at this point to update the loyal readers/followers of Andremusictalk on some new developments for the year. As of later 2017, I made the decision to roll back on blogging for five days in succession every week. And to concentrate on artists birthdays, special events, album and song releases instead. And of course if any of you readers follow me on Facebook, your always welcome to tell me about any new funk/soul/jazz /disco things for me to hear. And possibly review here as well.
Andresmusictalk is also seeking to reach out for new ways of sharing its content to those who enjoy it. Ever since the summer of 2017, found myself consistently in “Facebook jail” in terms of sharing in groups. Apparently in some circles, my content is perceived as spam. And am unfortunately beginning 2018 in that same situation. So if any of you know of an online group/community/page/forum on or off Facebook? One on which I could more effectively and safely share Andresmusictalk’s content with those interested? Would be very happy and gracious to know such information.
Wanted to personally thank the musicians in 2017, including sax player Gary Bartz, for taking the time to message me (again via Facebook) in regard to articles I’ve written about their albums and songs. One of the aims of Andresmusictalk was to reach out to musicians who create the music. Just as much as much as to the admirers who make that music so beloved and inspiring. In the truest sense, its moments like that which makes the bumps and bruises of doing Andresmusictalk worthwhile. Thank you all so much! And a very happy new year to THE PEOPLE!!!!!!
