Bo legs - An Atlanta Story
By ADelin Gasana
The Honorable Marvin S. Arrington, Sr.’s life story is the centerpiece of a new independent documentary film. For the new wave of Atlanta residents flooding the market the name may not be well-known. His name does not grace the main thoroughfares that snakes through the city. Even coming after the generation of Atlanta’s Civil Rights icons his name rarely compares. But for an older generation of Atlantans Marvin Arrington, Sr. is a popular and transcending figure.
Mama Jan - Breath
Video by Mama Jan Music
Breathe - the latest song written and performed by "Mama Jan" Smith, recorded and produced in Atlanta, GA at Homegirl Ent./Jan Smith Studios. The brilliantly executed lyric video was created by Mil Cannon (Imagemil). Smith and long-time bandmate, Peter Vogl recorded all acoustic guitars at her Atlanta-based studio with colleague Jesse Owen Astin (JOA) engineering. JOA later added a Moog synthesizer and pad, and Smith roughed in a string sketch. Rounding out the production, Christian Howes wrote a brilliant string arrangement and recorded authentic violins, violas, and cellos onto the track. The song was mixed by Shawn Grove with Mama Jan, and was mastered by Rodney Mills Masterhouse in Duluth, GA.
