ANDY BEY PERFORMS "SATAN APPEARS IN MANY FORMS"

It's been a while, but we're working hard on our new Jazz legends series...Coming Soon!

We were thrilled to hang out with and interview the Legendary Grammy-nominated pianist, vocalist and composer; Andy Bey!

Andy doesn't do too many interviews, but he shared a few gems with us and also performed several unreleased originals, like this one (see below) written sometime in the late-70s, "Satan Appears in Many Forms."

“They always talk about peace and love, but they never talk about cruelty," he said. "Alot of cruelty is hidden. It’s not about judging it, it’s just about calling a spade a spade. Demons are after you…but you still have to look for something higher than to want to get even or attack back, because it harms you and that’s what evil wants you to do. God is not about that."
