3/21 SOUL CLAP @ BRONSON BAR

SOUL CLAP MARCH FINAL


Happy Birthday BOBBY WOMACK!!!

One of my musical heroes who played a huge role in my musical pallet. His sound has influenced Rock, Funk, Pop, Soul and even Country. His high level of musicianship has yet to be duplicated. Happy Birthday Mr Robert Dwayne Womack aka BOBBY WOMACK!!!Image


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

Happy 40th Anniversary INNERVISIONS!!!

Happy 40th Anniversary to my favorite album of all albums ever. I remember being a kid dissecting this album to pieces while embracing the nuances and colors. 35 years later, the legend still burns me as a grown man damn near harassing the great ROBERT MARGOULEFF for an interview to speak on this album and countless others (if you know the name and his significance…you know what it is). ImageThis record changed and shaped my taste in many ways..INNERVISIONS!!!

Unique74 Remembers ..LEROY “Sugarfoot” BONNER

Without him. I could not understand me. As a man 39 years later, I now understand why he penned “I Want To Be Free”. It was because of this cat, I learned how to play rhythm guitar..the coolest of the cool. Rest In Paradise Mr Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner

You will be forever loved.

 

 


Alvin Robinson – Something You Got

THE version (in my book)..one of my fav 45 pieces. Slow, hot & bothered funk..straight gut. The drummer plays without hi hat or cymbals (New Orleans line dance style)..but in full swing. The style was basically ahead of its time and would later become the template Dilla (Iconic Musician/Producer) style of drum programming which many beatmakers/ producers have adopted in their own formula today.
