Wish I Was There

So this morning I was at the barbershop for my weekly haircut.  Don’t judge I just like to be fresh and have my hair a certain length.  Anyway, my barber has music playing in the shop and a lot of the music is what we call old school music.  So today the song that gave me an idea of what it would be like to be in a recording session for that song was “Freddie’s Dead” by Curtis Mayfield.  This was one of Mayfield’s famous records.  The song was featured on the “Superfly” soundtrack.  Listening to this record made me think how did this session go.  In my mind the musicians were all dressed up and what we call today “lit”.  I can imagine the session started out as along jam session until they got to a point where they just knew that what they had was a definite hit.  The instrumentation on this record is amazing.  The bass, drums, flute, horns, strings, and of course curtis.  I would have loved to just be in that session, man I wish I was there.  Check out the song below and just vibe out.
