R.I.P. James Brown

Just in case you were wondering, I had a great Christmas holiday. Freinds, family, turkey and wine. All the trimmings. The one thing I didn't expect though was to lose James Brown. Although by now, many will focus on his troubles of the past years, but all I think of when someone utters "James Brown", is the thought of great music. He was an innovator, an influencer, and a legend.

Below are two tracks. One, my favorite James Brown song from the Black Caesar soundtrack, and another from his backing band the J.B.'s, but he's there and it's just pure funk madness. RIP JB.
