~Song For Aretha~


Earthshine with sarasmile keeps the good vibes going despite /waves hands manically around her/ all this. This week, we’ve got several super jazz tracks, including the perfection that is Martial Solal’s piano score to “À Bout de Souffle;” not one but two Faces-adjacent tracks; a transcendent Black pride message from Curtis Mayfield; and an organ cover of the theme from “The Godfather.” As if that wasn’t enough cool stuff, the mix is capped by a closer – a love letter to Aretha Franklin from one of her bandmates – that is going to knock your socks off. Hit play and try not to check the news for an hour, Earthshine is here to smile.
