Jimmy Smith - Root Down. Recorded live in LA in February 1972. My copy is the 2016 reissue on Verve. The Beastie Boys sampled the title track, and this is the record I often put on when trying to decide what I want to spin. I seem to make better listening decisions when accompanied by Jimmy Smith. Hope everyone is having a great weekend. #sundayfunk
Root down to grow. ✨
Find your balance on the ground so you can be EXPANSIVE in your true Self. (Yes, the one with a capital “S”!)
Be present to the abundance surrounding you in all moments.

Svarthvitt førdi den har begynt å gro og e litt ekkel, og kan vi ta et sekund til å verdsette føflekken min som ser ut som nippelen hannes, og det va IKKE planagt😍
✌🏻out, Denver! It’s been real, but Twin B is ready to be home. Seriously, though, does this get the award for coolest airport restaurant or what?!
The guys behind @rootdownden
have totally outdone themselves with their new spot, @elfivedenver.
Such a badass space with inventive tapas like these ash roasted carrots. You’d think a dish with components like carrot, radish, fennel, pine nuts, spiced yogurt, seed granola and mint would compete on the palate but naw, they work beautifully.
We may have just touched down in Denver, but we certainly didn’t waste any time getting back into our Denver Food Game
Stopped by Root Down @rootdownden
in Terminal C of the Denver International Airport and boy did we feast on some tasty unique dishes. Here is the run down:
🍷🍺🍸- They offer a variety of draft beers, wines by the glass and classic cocktails for everyone. We had a Bourbon Cocktail along with a Peppery Gin cocktail. Both FANTASTIC
Moving on to sharable plates we were thrilled to hear they let you order half size apps. We tried the edamame hummus, along with the Colombian grilled cheese and blackberry duck wings. We enjoyed all but loved how different the Colombian grilled cheese and blackberry duck wings were. We also tried a few spoonfuls of Thai Curry Carrot soup and HOLY SMOKES I will be getting that very soon. .
For our entree’s (yes we were stuffed but we couldn’t pass up trying) we got the lamb sliders as pictured served with 3 sauces and sweet potato fries. Absolutely delicious. We also tried the Crispy Chicken Tacos topped with the perfect ingredients and avocado crema. .
We capped off this delicious dining experience with their carrot cake whoopee pies... no words for these.. they are addicting. Despite how full we were we ate both 😂
We highly recommend stopping by @rootdownden
inside DIA they have a fun fresh and healthy alternative to typical airport food. Not to mention a great view of the runway and the perfect noise level/ ambiance!

Which bass should Joe record with today?
Chakra Thursday’s are back! I apologize for the hiatus this week, but you’ll forget all about it when you learn that today we are kicking off CHAKRA YOGA SERIES! (Also, I’m moving so forgive the non professional photos!!) For the next 7 weeks, I will be giving you a handful of yoga poses that coordinate with each chakra, how to get in them, their Sanskrit name and more!
Mountain Pose (Tadasana)
Bring your big toes and heels together. Ground down through the four corners of your feet. Feel a lift in your kneecaps. Fire up your core. Raise your arms overhead. Swivels your pinky fingers inward. Drop your shoulders down.
Tadasana helps us feel balanced and centered while we’re grounding down through our feet. For an even larger grounding feeling, do it outside barefoot in the grass!
Squat down with your knees out wide. You may use a block under your butt for supported Malasana. Push into both sides of your feet evenly. Keep your spine straight. Bring your hands to prayer with your elbows pushed against your inner knees.
Malasana brings you closer to the Earth while calming the mind and spirit.
Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)
Bend your front knee into a 90-degree angle. Push through the knife-edge of your back foot. Keep your back leg straight with only a micro bend in the knee. Strengthen through your core. T out your arms. Bring your gaze down your front middle finger.
Virabhadrasana II helps you to face your fears and doubts. This pose actually uses your body’s energy and stimulates it through your feet pressed into the ground helping you to connect more deeply with strength and determination. .

Sometimes self-love = loving others who love you right back.
Today, I get to fly for the first time with my boo, Bryan! Yeah.. almost 5 years and we've never been on a plane together lol. Until today!
