J Rawls & John Robinson present their group JAY ARE, an ode to not only Jazz Music, but the culture that inspired progressive social/political movements as well as a vast array of cultural exploration, in their release “The 1960’s Jazz Revolution Again…” dropping on August 28th, 2009 on Polar/Groove Attack.  Meshing the spirit of the 1960s, both J Rawls and John Robinson explore the genre of Jazz Music, as many would consider it to be the Grandfather of Hip Hop, while participating in a freedom which allowed various artists to come together, vibe out, and produce great music that will be studied for years to come.  Musicians of the 60’s also reacted to their social environment creating art and music that was reflective of their environment and culture, and both J Rawls and John Robinson continue that process as our current political and socio-economic times face much peril.
