2 great books which came out this year:

“Sounds Like London: 100 Years of Black Music In The Capitol” – Lloyd Bradley.
& also music recently arrived this year:
Lifford “Came From”, Bluey “Leap Of Faith”, Ray Hayden “Things Will Get Better” & Martine Girault – Opaz Recordings,
Personal Life & Tokyo Dawn various remixes, Jazz Bailey “My Heart”, Raheem DeVaughn “A Place Called Loveland”, Cleveland P. Jones, & SoulPersona for over all output of remixes and original music

Those we lost in 2013 duly remembered:  Donald Byrd, Don Blackman, George Duke, Stan Tracey, Felix Dexter, Nelson Mandela, Oliver Cheatham,  Chico Hamilton, Bobby Bland, Lou Reed, Junior Murvin, Richard Bryers, Bobby Parker  – RIP.
