127: “I’ve Got Reasons” by Mary Jane Hooper


Black Marylin is spreading some funk.Here’s a tasty taste of New Orleans.  I first heard this track on a New Orleans funk compilation, and Mary Jane Hooper is worth a further listen.

This woman has reasons.  She knows where her bread and butter lie.  You cannot argue with her empirical suppositions.

Count the many reasons to enjoy…
