Robin’s Egg Blue by swo8 Blues Jazz Lyrics by Harris Tobias

Sometimes things don’t go so well in matters of the heart. Harris Tobias wrote the lyrics and he tells the story. In conclusion we often behave like children in these situations. Try a little tenderness instead. This is a fun collaboration between Harris and swo8. As yet this piece of music is not available on iTunes. But we’ll include it in a future album. 4:32 min.

The Rose of Black is Sacred music by swo8 Blues Jazz Lyrics by Shelby Courtland from the album Unfinished Business in iTunes

And we thought it couldn’t happen here in Canada. It came to my attention in tonight’s news that there was a fatal shooting of Alain Magloire, a 58 year old black man fatally shot by Montreal police, June 28th 2017. It has renewed concerns from civil rights advocates about the way officers are trained to handle individuals in distress. The man was breaking dishes, he was yelling, he lost control,” Will Prosper, a former RCMP officer turned activist, said it appears the man wasn’t “presenting a menace to anyone except to his apartment.” One positive thing that has come from this is training in de-escaltion situations. Let us hope it makes a difference. 4:17 min.
