Leon Bridges, whose album "Coming Home" fits definition of retro-soul to a T.
Tonight we're playing with the idea of "retro sound", with retro soul being the vehicle. The guiding thought is the music of today inspired by the sounds of yesterday. There's no exact formula, just a whole lotta feel.
Tonight's show took a decidedly soulful turn. We started off by paying tribute to the recently passed Nigerian drummer and afrobeat legend Tony Allen, but quicky transitioned into some lesser known cuts from the heyday of soul and funk. Expect some tracks you've never head before, and maybe a few that you have.
Tonight we're gonna give the drummer some, and pay tribute to Jazz drummer Jimmy Cobb who passed away at 91. Each song featured in this session has Cobb behind the drums, and is a collection of some of greatest recordings in Jazz.
