Still shot of James Bond film in old, old Harlem…Lenox Avenue.  Look at the gold Cadillac, a player’s delight.

I was listening to one of my Old School playlists on my iPod the other day and vibing along to one of the hits from the Seventies. One of those records that my uncles loved and would make them reminisce about being flyy and high and living the fast life in Harlem and around New York City. It just made me think of those old players from back then. Most are gone now, but they were legendary, much like the music.

I picked some of my favorite gems from that era and I dedicate this playlist to them and to two of my favorite uncles: Jerry and John. May they rest in Peace.
