JAMES BROWN R.I.P. - the man who influenced loads of the music we are listening and gettin down to today, the endless repetitive funky grooves, which can be found in techno and housemusic, the man without whom hiphop would probably not exist, the "hardest working man in show business" always gave 200% of his energy into the music. even at the age of 73 he was about to perform two shows on one evening this new years eve in new york. a truly unique character in the whole world of music. he was doing it to death, full power, no stopping him. and even though he did not write most of the music he will be the king of soul & funk forever. and his musicians, mainly the jb's with fred wesley, maceo parker, bobby byrd, pee wee ellis, created a groove which is the basis for soul & funk today. their music transformed the original tribal african roots into heavy and sweaty funk grooves which never seem to end. and even their "bridges" inspired a whole new art of music, i.e. created by the new yorker female only band, esg. jb's way of moving , dancing , performing will stay in our heads forever and only in connection with his name. and as it is all about music here . . . and also political statements made through music - "say it loud i'm black and proud" changed a whole generation of afro americans and gave them part of their power against the struggle and racism which they had and still have to face in the usa - here is a selection of some of my favourite tunes instead of a preview 2007 soulpatrol box.
