Happy Black History Month: CHARLES STEPNEY
He is one of the main influences and inspirations for my musical pallet for which I continue to grow. As a kid, I was always marveled by the texture and color in many of his iconic productions. He was one of the main architects in Chicago Soul & Pop for he embraced Classical, Blues Jazz & Rock with his own unique signature that spawned the sounds of Earth, Wind & Fire, Ramsey Lewis & Rotary Connection just to name a few. His level of style, lush and detail took R&B over the top and has influenced many after him. This is the story of Mr CHARLES STEPNEY. #HappyBlackHistoryMonth#Soul #RhythmAndBlues #Pop #Icon #Rock #Innovator #HipHop #Jazz
