Today I’m hoping to complete a goal I set for myself almost 20 years ago - get my amateur radio license.

Childqueen by Kadhja Bonet falls into several neo- genres but stands really tall on the strength of Ms. Bonet's vocal jazz skills. If I were to over-simplify things I'd say this is what you'd get if you made a Diana Ross, Family Stone, and Esperanza Spalding supergroup.
