James Brown recorded the pet project Gettin' Down to It in Cincinnati, OH, at King Studios, between December 1968 and March 1969. Although you can't tell by the album's title, it reflects Soul Brother Number One momentarily stepping back from the fiery racial and political atmosphere of the times. Following the murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., the riots sparked by that event, and his calming effect on it, Mr. Dynamite replaced "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)" with his love of standards utilizing the melancholy phrasing of his favorite male vocalist, Frank Sinatra. Aided by the acoustic piano trio led by Dee Felice, Brown tackles such romantic chestnuts as "Strangers in the Night," "That's Life," "It Had to Be You," "Willow Weep for Me," and "All the Way." Although laid-back could be applied to the album's overall tone, these 12 tracks are by no means "mellow." After all, this is James Brown! For instance, "(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons," clocking in at 7:40, combines pianist Frank Vincent's percussive vamping with James testifying as if he had this tune confused with "Ain't It Funky Now." While the disc is made up of mainly standards, that doesn't stop Brown from including two of his compositions, "Cold Sweat" and an instrumental take of "There Was a Time," reworked to fit the album's easygoing mood with jazzy elements intact. Even though there aren't any bonus tracks, this Verve reissue does include the original packaging and liner notes with Marc Eliot's insightful addendum tacked on. A curious entry in the James Brown catalog, Gettin' Down to It is a savory listen.

Curtis Mayfield, Black Music Matters

Curtis Mayfield ist ein Ästhet der Gitarre, der von Hendrix geliebt wird, ein Sänger mit einem verrückten Falsett, der von Prince verehrt wird, und ein hochkarätiger Songwriter, der Symphonien mit Funk, Gospel und Soul für die große Leinwand geschaffen hat. Zwanzig Jahre nach seinem Tod passt seine politisch engagierte Musik immer noch zu Amerika.

„Thriller“, Analyse eines Meisterwerks

Michael Jacksons „Thriller“ aus dem Jahr 1982, das meistverkauften Album aller Zeiten, schaffte es, Grenzen von Stilen, Rassen und Publikum aufzubrechen. Gewissermaßen ist es die erste und einzige Transgender-Platte… Aber vor allem ein Album, das die Musikindustrie des 20. Jahrhunderts auf den Kopf stellte.

Das goldene Funk-Zeitalter des James Brown

Zwischen 1967 und 1974 wandelte der Godfather seine Soul-Musik in Funk um. Mithilfe der zu diesem Zeitpunkt groovigsten Musiker überhaupt lieferte James Brown Songs, die zu den damaligen Brüchen innerhalb der amerikanischen Gesellschaft passten. Jeder wollte mit einsteigen in die Sex Machine!
