Lawrence's hit of the same title.

Track 1: Grooveology
Ever since I can remember, I've had these grooves in my head. What makes this
track especially significant is that it features my good friends, Rick Roe, soloing on
piano, and John E. Lawrence on guitar. Female voice: Claire S. Taylor.
 
Track 2: Brooklyn Queen
This track is inspired by my first trip to New York City. From the moment I
entered the cab at the airport, the music began. For the most part, I composed it
during cab and subway rides throughout Brooklyn, Manhattan and Harlem. This
track is graced by John E. Lawrence, on guitar.
 
Track 3: Passion Storm
This groove describes the storm that happens when two people share passion.
 
Track 4: Ponder
The song depicts a journey of thought. Ponder that.
 
Track 5: Remember
This is a reflection of family and friends getting together at a backyard barbeque.
This track also features John E. Lawrence on guitar. Conversation (beginning):
The Groovematist, Damon Jacobs.
 
Track 6: Endless

you endure the wait.
 
Thank You's
I would like to thank the Creator of all life, for the gift of hearing music.
I would like to thank my Mother, Sandra, and my Father, Mechial, for their passion

Denice: thank you for your presence. You inspire me to be a better man. Love to
all my family that I don't often get to see - you are always in my thoughts.
Thank you Adrian Pittman at Podwerx for my new symbol (The Groovematist logo)
and David Meyer for all of the photography. Thank you to John Palmer and
Megawave Records for getting their groove on with The Groovematist. A special
mention to everyone who played in the groove lab: I appreciate your skills and
contributions. And to everyone else who has ever provoked thought and energy in
me. The list is endless. Peace.
 
To everyone who feels the groove, the music on this CD has left room
for you to solo your own instrumentation. Get your groove on.
