Gil Scott Heron – we salute you!


I was sorry to read about the death of Gil Scott Heron today. I wish I could claim to be an authority on his work -but I’m not.

Suffice to say, his music laid the groundwork for Hip-Hop, but also encompassed blues and soul. Last year’s I’m New Here album, his first for thirteen years, saw him building his profile once more.

I was going to post ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised or ‘Living In The Bottle’ – but I think this is an excellent example of his work.

Rest in peace.
