JM Soul Connoisseurs Special Maurice White Tribute

JM Soul Connoisseurs Special Maurice White Tribute

Chart positions

This show was 22nd in the global funk - soul - jazz chart, 47th in the global funk chart and 77th in the global soul chart.

A very personal one to me as Earth Wind & Fire was the first record I ever bought and my first major concert, at Wembly Arena in the 70's, at the height of their success.

Maurice White was for a large part responsible for the soundtrack of my youth and responsible for shaping my musical taste which 40 years later is still the foundation of my love of soul music.

He is truly a multitalented musical legend as a Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Producer and Arranger he excelled in everything he did.

A journey through his career from a session drummer for Chess to the Ramsey Lewis Trio and beyond.

An epic tribute featuring music from Earth, Wind & Fire 1969 - 2004, Salty Peppers, The Emotions, Ramsey Lewis, Deniece Williams, Deodato, Afterbach etc..

Classics but not necessarily the 'hits' as this is a connoisseurs tribute after all. We have some of the harder to find versions and tracks from the vaults but in the main sticking to the masterpieces in their original form.

Hey Colin, Very kind of you sir. Thank you so much for your kind words. Yes you are right should not need someone to die to celebrate their talent. Why I try to do specials with Interviews when I am lucky enough to get an interview. He was truly a legend.
