This session may be laid back but it's definitely not "plain" - it's music to soothe the soul and bring in the energy of light - a mix of pure timeless tunes - thank you so much for reminding us of these gems.

The Soul Preacher

That's right. Thanks for fixing my English. I should have said "pure" or "genuine".


Such a nice nice set , H. And very surprising versions of well known tunes 😀

The Soul Preacher

Thanks for listening G. It's quite some music, indeed.

Robert Newman

When I moved to New York City in 1986 I listened every Sunday morning to Hal Jackson's Sunday Morning Classics on WBLS-FM. This playlist brings back memories of that show, a mix of classic soul, rare songs, jazz, some gospel, new songs with a classic sound, always smooth and soulful. Quiet Fire is a great title for this music, and we all can use a little more quiet fire and mellowness in our lives. Thanks for a great playlist!!

The Soul Preacher

Thanks Robert. Your comment made my day. That's exactly how I hear the music. I might want to book you for my author / editor. 😀


Amazing selection here ... thanks!

The Soul Preacher

Looking forward to diving into this.

The Soul Preacher

Sure, at any time, thank you!
