I remember my lil cousin, as kid, coming to Oklahoma and saying that it looked as if someone had sprinkled seasoned salt everywhere. A distinct Oklahoma characteristic really is its red dirt. For years I searched for the words to describe the unique hyptnotic soul that was inherent in artist coming out of … Oklahoma. It’s like how Tony Toni Tone, back in the day, had put their finger on the pulse of what was going on in the Bay area and called it the “Oakland stroke.” The ‘Oklahoma sound’ has feel and sound that just runs through you after after rolling up through the wooden floor boards of one of those old school Churches and goes straight into your bones. You feel it everytime you here some GAP band or some Charlie Wilson, you know what I’m talkin’ bout. Like barbeque- whoever said that Memphis was the “king” of the south had had barbeque from Oklahoma. In fact you ain’t seen the south until ya seen that “Red Durt!”
