Jack Wyles is (Just Seein' Whats Up). He studied with the late legendary bassist and composer Jaco Pastorius, and was leader and executive producer of the Oakland, CA band "In The Pocket!," whose C.D. was put into initial nomination for a Grammy in 1993 for Best New Jazz -Fusion Instrumental Group. His new C.D.draws from the improvisations of jazz as well as the grooves of the street..... It's innovative, emotional, and positive! (Just Seein' What's Up) ranges from funk and hip-hop to swing jazz to rock...from jamming instrumentals to spoken word and rap. It does bend a few genres...
but as beatnik / sage Mr Espresso says:
Time for the light to turn green
Maybe change the scene
You know what I mean?
Time to find a new street to walk on
To open up, to drink from the cup.
Re-configure the paradigm of linear time
Flippin, trippin like a spaceship ride
as you slide......
Touch the colors floating by
You can climb above the sublime.
It ain't free
but it's worth it to see
of you and me.
Kinda makes you wanna go
BLIP - BLOP
DRIP - DROP
