This show was 1st in the global soul chart, 1st in the global soulful chart, 1st in the global funk chart and 3rd in the global jazz chart.
A jazzy tribute to one of the finest soul singers of all time. Marvin Gaye didn‘t write all these tunes but will be affiliated with them forever. Also not all of these tunes are really Jazz but all of them have a jazzy twist. On the last song you‘ll hear a VERY JAZZY Marvin Gaye. From his 1964 Tamla LP WHEN I‘M ALONE I CRY (TM 251). Precious!
Other featured artists in this mix: Everette Harp, Carolyn & Aretha Franklin at their farther‘s church, Jr. Walker & The All Stars, Booker T., Earl Klugh, Grover Washington, Marlena Shaw, Reuben Wilson, Nils Landgren Funk Unit, Maceo with Pee Wee & Fred & more ...
PS: If you like the JB Horns look out for a new Minor Music release soon. LIFE ON PLANET GROOVE will be re-released with bonus material and a DVD. Also a new CD by Pee Wee Ellis (playing Duke Ellington with pianist Danny Grissett) should be available by February 2018 on Minor Music. I had the pleasure to contribute the photos and the design.
