African American Music Appreciation Month

Thanks to Peter Bakke for the tip on June being African-American Music Appreciation Month.

To get you started, consider taking a listen to Robert Glasper’s new album, Everything’s Beautiful, where he samples a bunch of Miles Davis recordings.

I’ve been meaning to listen to more of Prince’s discography, so I’ll probably start working through that this month.

Other music on the list:

Mahalia Jackson

Duke Ellington

Andrae Crouch

Mississipi Mass Choir

Outkast

A Tribe Called Quest

Christian Scott

Jay-Z

Wayman Tisdale

Victor Wooten

Who’s on your list?
