The Soul Show will present Miss Freddye’s music for the first time. Her album is called ‘Lady Of The Blues.’ Also, I’ll crack open Rasheed Ali’s 2021 ‘Hindsight Is 20/20.’ His music is always socially conscious and historically driven.
Bob Dylan turned 80 on Monday, so I will spin R&B covers of his vast songbook. You’ll hear Patti LaBelle, Nina Simone, Babyface, The Isleys and a host of others perform Bob’s music.
To celebrate Miles Davis’ 95th birthday, I’ll play something from his fusion masterpiece ‘Bitches Brew.” Also, listen to a track from his wife Betty, who pointed him in the direction of blending jazz with rock. She’ll be on Three Rivers at Three.
For Memorial Day weekend, there will be The Whispers, John Legend & The Roots, plus something out of genre that might be the most touching and vivid war song that I know.
The syndicated edition of TSS takes you deeper into Miss Freddye’s 2021 release. Also, get to know 24-Carat Black, the 1970s soul collective, and enjoy some extended instrumental Donny Hathaway.
