When I use the term "old school", I'm referring to the time period from the mid 1960's to the the early 1980's, with a strong emphasis on the 1970's. This period was the most creative and exciting time in music history. The songs (and the 'sound') from this period, across multiple genres, are songs we still listen to today and they still touch us and move us. These are timeless songs that even the younger generations relate to (and sample!).
I was fortunate to grow up during this period. I listened to a wide variety of music. The local radio station played jazz and jazz-fusion during the weekday and had a special blues show every Monday night. Other times, I heard Top 40 songs, a mix of pop, rock, funk, and R&B. Every other week or so, when I visited my grandmother, I heard jazz and blues. I heard everything from Vivaldi to Led Zeppelin, Howling Wolf to the Isley Brothers, and Dinah Wahington to Grover Washington, Jr. I also received most of my formal music training during this time: piano (pop and classical), to violin (classical and jazz), to electric guitar (R&B and rock), and finally to alto sax (jazz, rock, and blues). This collective listening experience and musical training is the sensibility I bring to my own compositions. I don't feel compelled to restrict myself to any one musical style of genre. Instead, I allow myself to freely express what I hear or feel in my head at the time.
I am "Morpheus B: The O.G.". "Morpheus" as in one who 'morphs', free to change and explore, open to the infinite possibilities presented by technology and the Universal Groove Collective. I hope you enjoy the little pieces of my soul, and my heart, that I share through my music. Peace.
