Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak: ‘An Evening With Silk Sonic’ Interview | Apple Music

Silk Sonic, Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars', "Leave the Door Open," is the first music that has touched my SOUL from the first time I heard it many months ago and keeps touching me, since the great music of the 60's and 70's.
The more I listen to these two and the songs on their album, the more I want to know about both of them and their process of making good music.
They are around the same ages as my oldest grandchildren or I would be behaving like a groupie scheming to see them perform and meet them. And a backstage pass would be a port of entry.
I can't even remember when I've crushed over music like this in a great many years.

Bruce Talamon's Photos Captured a Golden Era of Black Music. Now, They're Coming for Your Closet

SOUL Newspaper's Bruce Talamon has accomplished some awesome things in his 50 very active years as a photographer. He's also published two historical books, "Bob Marley's Spirit Dancer," and "Soul R&B Funk" and now he has a collectors line of tee--shirts. Check out this story about Bruce's latest project. Bruce is always thanking SOUL and me for his successful career but I have to thank Bruce for ever striving to be the very best at whatever he endeavors to do. He continually raises the bar higher and higher and always has. It's been my pleasure and honor to work with Bruce for 49 years. Thank you Howard Bingham for a gift that never stops giving, creating, and excelling. Regina Jones

Sarah Dash R.I.P.
Feels like yesterday when I first say LaBelle at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium. They tore the roof off the house that night. Gracing the cover of SOUL, March 3, 1975, LaBelle touched the hearts of America. I can see the auditorium filled with people, many of us wearing fantastic hats, in the mood to move and be moved.

TAKEOFF #1: FULL EXCLUSIVE BONUS! Herb Trawick (Pensado's Place/Music Industy Vet) - Juneteenth 2021

One of the best hours I've spent in a very long time. I've known Ernie Singleton for what seems forever, but was not aware of what he's been up to this past decade. Herb Trawick, I met in 1983, when I began working at Dick Griffey Productions / SOLAR Records. I was 41 and he was about 27. He was young, bright, gifted, and full of himself as he should have been at that time in his Black male life. Dick Griffey had provided me an opportunity to begin a new career as his VP of Publicity even though I had no experience as a publicist. I told him that and his response was simply, "I'm willing to pay you for six months to prove that you know how to do publicity." I asked, "When do I start?" I was in need of recovery from the loss of my mother, the failure of 16-year-old SOUL Newspaper and the failure of a 20+ year marriage. The bill collectors were gunning for me and I had five children ages 19 - 25, just barely out of the nest. Two were in college and I so wanted them to accomplish something that I had not done. Both Ernie and Herb just inspired me. It takes some good talk to inspire young folk so imagine what it takes to inspire a full bloom elder. Thank you both.

Earth Wind & Fire!

09/07/2021

“Curtis Mayfield is to soul music what Bach was to the classical, and Gershwin and Irving Berlin were to pop music; a soul laureate and catalyst and the heart and soul of a song and a people.” - Aretha Franklin

Four Tops Live in Concert - "I Believe In You And Me"

The Four Tops were a force of nature. I loved them in the small clubs, the large clubs, the concert halls and large spaces. Never could get enough of moving to their music. This is late in Levi's life and career but he's still got it.

Did you catch this issue of SOUL ILLUSTRATED in ‘RESPECT’ ?? @respectmovie An amazing film with a stellar cast. @iamjhud was stunning. Thank you for including us in the history of Aretha. She was a friend to Regina and just a legendary contributor of SOUL!We have posters of the original cover on our site and the full issue available to read in our members section. Link in bio!

08/13/2021

On this day 31 years ago, Curtis Mayfield arrived for a Brooklyn, NY. concert soundcheck. On a rain-swept afternoon, high winds toppled a lighting rig. He was trapped underneath, his spine crushed in three places, paralyzing him from the neck down. He was now wheelchair-bound. If he had little control over his body though, he still controlled his career. Slowly at first, some strength returned but it was four years before he sang again in public. This was enough to convince him he should get back to recording. The result was his last album, “New World Order,” his last great song, “Here but I’m Gone,” original music recorded in his home studio under great pressure.
