In this episode of 4Pz, The Pain & Pleasure Pa$$ion Produced, it was my 51st birthday and my wife got me tickets to the Pittsburgh Jazz International Festival. She got us a hotel downtown Pittsburgh, we stayed at the CamBria Hotel, very nice, and loved the downtown location. We had Tickets to see Angelique Kidjo at the August Wilson Center, another amazing facility, this show was on Saturday night. Sunday we had tickets to see Byron Stripling and Marva Hicks in “All That Jazz, Ella & Louie” at Hienz Hall which is a incredible venue, the venue along is art.But it was the late night jazz jam sessions downtown on Penn Avenue at Le Lyonnais that made the weekend special, catching JAZZMEIA HORN freestyling with national and local jazz musicians was unbelievable.
Right across the street was one oif my best tacos experience at Bakesrsfield also on Penn Avenue. My wife is the best, it was a great 51st birthday!
In this week of Blindfaith beats I’m working on a beat that me, my son, and Xavier Williams worked on a while back, but i just needed to put a arrangement on it, and now it is ready to go.
We breakdown how we made the beat, and you can check the beat out at the end of the video, and also can download it on my soundcloud website at
