James Brown Tribute

The Hardest Working Man in Show Buisness, James Brown, sadly passed away this week on Christmas day. His influence and innovation touched many artists, including those playing Jazz. Greats like Herbie Hancock and Joshua Redman and others fused JB's funky musical style into the jazz genre. We'll here from some of those musicians as well as the Godfather of Soul himself.
