SLST JAMES BROWN XMAS SPECIAL INCOMING!!! Sat Dec 21 - Time for our annual The South London Soul Train JB celebration as we mark the 13 year anniversary of the passing of the unequalled genius that is / was the hardest working man in show business. Mr Dynamite. Jaaaaaaaaaaaames Brown. [Dec 25 2006 RIP] An SLST Christmas Special where your host with the absolute most JAZZHEADCHRONIC + (delivering the Big Payback) The LBJBs (LIVE). Both artists celebrating the life and works of the original Godfather of Soul, with a mind blowing combined 5 hour set (LIve & DJ) featuring the show stopping sounds of James Brown & family. Solo works to collaborations and compositions with one of the fiercest bands to grace a funked up stage or recording studio. Maceo Parker to Fred Wesley via Vicki Anderson to Bobby Byrd + More - celebrated and dropped hard at The CLF Art Cafe.
JAZZHEADCHRONIC & THE LBJB's mining the complete back catalogue of James Brown and dropping it til it hurts. Live bombs o' soul from his iconic Polydor Record Years to epic works of the 70’s, 80's and 90's - James Brown Classics ’Say It Loud, I’m Black & I'm Proud’, ‘Get On The Good Foot’ and ’Super Bad' to all time 'The JBs' Anthems “Across The Tracks’ ‘Soul Power’ and ’Think'. Lest we forget classic solo works from simply mind blowing Albums ’The Payback', ’The Jungle Groove', ‘Black Caesar' + More. ’Shoot Your Shot', ’The Funky Drummer', ‘Give It Up or Turn It Loose’ the list goes on and on and on.
Original Takes to remixes and rare gems from the Polydor, Federal, King and Scotti Brothers Record Vaults dropped hard, large, loud and direct to the dancefloor all night long - alongside more than a few equally heavyweight non JB joints to keep the vibe absolutely righteous.
With Mukatsuku Head NIK WESTON opening up on the 1/F with a JB free audio blow torch from 10pm sharp, you know we mean business.
