About Me

As Paul Butterfield once sang, "I was born in Chicago..." I'm a Chicago boy born, bred, and raised through and through. In many ways, I consider myself a citizen of the globe, though, as I do everything I can to immerse myself into other cultures (especially their music).

Favorite Songs

Top 5 U2: "Mysterious Ways", "Ultraviolet (Light My Way)", "I Fall Down", "One Tree Hill", "City of Blinding Light"

Top 5 Everyone Else: "A Change is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke, "Thank You Lord" by Bob Marley, "I'll be Around" by the Spinners, "Come Rain or Come Shine" by Ray Charles, "There is a Mountain" by Donovan "Night and Day" by Mr. Frank Sinatra (Sorry, I cheated and added more)

Favorite Artists

U2, The Beatles, Philip Glass, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder, Beach Boys, Janine Jansen, Yo Yo Ma, Ravi Shankar, George Harrison, and many many others.

Favorite Albums

"Achtung Baby" (U2) "In the Wee Small Hours" (Frank) "Songs in the Key of Life" (Stevie) "Pet Sounds" (Beach Boys) "Abbey Road" (Beatles) "Substance" (New Order) "Under the Blacklight" (Rilo Kiley)

Recent Concerts

I really don't like going to concerts much anymore. Does that make me a bad person?

Actually, walking down the street with your iPod on is like walking down a stage in your own personal movie. Who needs a stage when you have your own personal soundtrack?

Mixtapes

Sunday Morning Soulflow

This is the very first mix I put together for IMP. Music is spiritual for me, and I wanted my disc to get some serious soul jumping flow into the mix. Put it another way, it ain't got that thing unless it's got swing.

King Affa's Songs

This is a fun mix I put together for grooving in a new condo. Hot fun in the autumntime!

New Year's 2008 -- A Very Fine Vintage

The mix I made for counting down the final hour to New Year's Day on December 31, 2007.
