Come this rare Nora Jones remake by Stephen R. Duhart “Carnival Town”

I’ve always loved to sing along with this beautiful song while out on the road, really going nowhere.

Nora Jones touch and compassion for this song is unmatched and should not be replicated, but I guess Duhart couldn’t help himself.

The Music world has lost a legend - March 27, 2013

 

 

The Music world has lost a legend.

 Nate Fitzgerald has played with all of the great legends from Motown and R & B, on Sax.

A great friend of JJB Music and a mentor to Stephen R. Duhart he will be truly Missed.

He was best friends with Grover Washington before he passed away.  

 Nate had some amazing stories about the day  Martin Luther King was assassinated he was staying in the same hotel a few doors down. He was on tour with the Mighty Clouds of Joy and was switching to go on tour with the Staple Singers the next day. He said that the whole week the atmosphere was just charged with restlessness. . He said it was an eerie disturbing week. The morning he came back from his room after doing a set with the band , Martin Luther King had been shot just a few doors down from him. This is just a glimpse of his discography

Dj Godzilla Debute Album update - January 28, 2010

This recording has been a long and tedious one for JJB Music’s chief engineer Ser-Robert,

“ I’ve done a lot of records for the JJB team but this one takes the cake!”

Asked why the long drawn out process on this particular project?

“well we here at JJB Music have always been committed to excellence and this recording is no exception.

But since this is Dj Godzilla debut LP the quality control has been on high alert!”

Understanding all this takes a visit to the JJB music sound recorders studio In St. Louis Mo.

There I find Ser-Robert, Dj Godzilla and up and coming artist DubL R. re cutting vocal tracks on a track entitled“ You know you got it bad”.

Dj Godzilla says, “ after we mixed the first version the artist DubL R felt he could do a better job on two of the three raps he is contributing to this monstrous project, so they went back in and cut Two of them.

the before mentioned, “Stereo Booty” and “Kamikaze kiss” which also features Stephanie Thomas on lead Vocals…

I asked Ser-Robert would this push back the March release date and his reply was “ who are you and what company do you work for?” as security had me ushered from the facility.

Guess that means NO.

DDQ Labs - November 18, 2009

This story should be filed under the heading "sometimes you have to trip over something to find it." I have an office in Santa Monica, California. For years, I have listened to music while I work on my wife's old, beat-up, small, plastic, and broken down boom-box. It was okay, but the quality of the sound is not that good. Like many people, I have computers in my office. One of them is hooked up to some pretty good speakers. One day, about two or three months ago, it occurred to me that I could play my CDs in the computer with the good speakers. So, I placed a CD in my computer, and whoosh the Windows Real Media Player program opened up and asked me if I wanted to "rip" the CD onto my computer? "Of course," I thought, "why didn't I think of this before!" So, over the last month or so, I have been slowly, methodically, "ripping" my entire CD collection onto my computer. Ok, so why am I telling you this? Well, it turns out that Real Media Player has a "shuffle" feature that randomly selects tracks from your "Library."

So, one day I hit the "shuffle" feature and go back to work. Now, a large part of my CD collection consists of music from the JJB Music, Inc. catalogue, featuring artists like Ser-Robert, Ronnie, Tim Anderson, and many others. I have known the Officer-in-charge-of-daily-operations for JJB Music, Inc., Stephen R. Duhart, for many years. And for years, I have listened to Mr. Duhart talk excitedly about the superior sound quality, production techniques, and related audio "superiority" of JJB Music, Inc.'s catalogue utilizing DDQ technologies TM. Over the years as I listened to music from the JJB Music, Inc. catalogue, I grew to appreciate the superior audio quality and production. But here's the thing. That day in my office, by virtue of having my computer randomly select tracks using the Real Media Player program "shuffle" feature, I started to hear the JJB tracks against everything else (including music from the biggest names in the business). The contrast was startling.

Without fail, the superior sound quality and production of the JJB tracks stood out like the proverbial "sore-thumb." Without planning it, the "shuffle" feature was slowly providing a compare-contrast of JJB Music, Inc.'s catalogue with every other CD I owned. Since I was working, it slowly dawned on me. I kept thinking to myself, "what is responsible for this one superior sound that it so superior to everything else?" After about the 8th or 9th JJB Music, Inc. track, I got out of my seat to see what was playing. That is when I figured out that it was the JJB Music, Inc. tracks that were uniformly standing out for their superior sound. And then I had the "light-bulb moment." "So THIS is what Mr. Duhart has been raving about all these years! He's right. The JJB Music, Inc. sound is incredible!"

All this happened by accident. If I had not decided to play my CDs on my computer hooked up to the good speakers, which led to the discovery of the Real Media Program, the "ripping," and finally listening to my CD collection on a random-track by random-track basis, I would never have realized that the JJB Music, Inc. sound and production quality is so superior to everything else. Hat's off to Mr. Duhart, the moving force behind this accomplishment. If you want to hear it for yourself, give your catalogue (and include a dozen or so JJB Music, Inc. tracks if you do not already have them) a random play and see for yourself. The difference is awesome. Enjoy!

Dj Godzill to release solo album March 2010 - August 3, 2009

Due to over whelming demand Dj Godzilla will release a collection of great Dj songs,

Tuttle’s so far, “John & Yoko” “You got it bad” and “Saturday at Brennans”

Dj Godzilla was asked , “Why do a full release now after years of radio, Pod casting and working exclusively for JJB Music Inc.?”

 - Well , I’ve been doing this this thing called music since the early 90’s And over the years and my travels I have noticed that there are a lot of Dj Godzilla imitators, Fakers & want to be, “ME!” the real Dj Godzilla, so I thought I would lock down and get deep in the Lab. Working day and night on a Phat bomb record to level the Dj playing surface, then jump start the whole thing from scratch! Plus this will be an exclusive JJB Music Inc. Release. We also asked if his Mentor Dj Osunlade would appear on the record and Dj Godzilla replied “in spirit yes” but then you never know!!”
