What a shock - the legend + GODFATHER of Soul James Brown died yesterday.
This magic man opened the door to sound of funk and it's funky flavours.
I hope he teaches the old man upstairs how to dance !
Here's a couple of mp3's to give thanks to the main man:
Soulful Christmas - James Brown ***mp3***
(Jazzman ::: JM. 036 (JMXMAS. 001) ::: 2004)
Published by Unichappell Music Inc / Dynatone Publishing Company.

The Payback Mix - James Brown ***mp3***
(Keep On Doing What You're Doing But Make It Funky)
Mixed by Matt Black & Jonathan More (Coldcut)
Out in 1988 (18 years ago !) blending together some of his many great moments and has become the definitive and authorised mix of his greatest hits.
With the help of relative newcomers at the time, Matt Black & Jonathan More, later to become the awesome Coldcut, this single reached No. 12 in the charts that April and the live mix apparently received an eight minute standing ovation at the DMC 'Disco' Mix Championships at the Albert Hall the same year !!!
*****N.B. These mp3's will be available for this week only *****
