I’m trying something new here. Those of you who follow me on Twitter know I’m a music nut. Every Sunday, I’ll post a few tracks that I’ve been listening to over the past week, in the hope that you might enjoy expanding your musical horizons.
Got a track to share with me? Drop it into the comments.
Jamie Smith & Gil Scott-Heron: “I’ll Take Care of U”
First up: Jamie Smith of The xx released a remix album of Gil Scott-Heron’s I’m New Here this past Tuesday. It’s fantastic, and “I’ll Take Care of U,” the album closer, has been on repeat all week.
Be sure to listen to my interview with Joseph Touraty, the owner of Il Cantuccio Pizzeria, a restaurant across the street from the Smith-9th Street station. Mr. Touraty’s pizzeria opened four months ago, before the construction project began. Thanks to the long-term work being done at Smith-9th, most of his customers disappeared, and he’s not sure his business will survive.
