Nearly 11 and a half years after his passing, I still have to remind myself that James Brown is no longer with us. An entertainer and influencer until his final days, his musical DNA can still be heard in music being released today. Sampled thousands, probably tens of thousands of times, his trademark voice and music composition are instantly recognizable. Maybe in a future post I’ll go into further detail on that topic.
This #CoolShirtFriday is a nod to The “Godfather of Soul” himself, Mr. James Brown.
I’m going to get on the good foot and listen to some of my favorite songs of his today.
