The Soul Show, streaming worldwide and On-Demand: A Tribute to Buddy Miles

August 5 would have been the 75th birthday of drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles. We’ll cover his musical imprints in the ways you expect on The Soul Show:

  • The California band he co-founded, The Electric Flag
  • The one-off project with Jimi Hendrix that would come to define the rock power trio – the Band of Gypsys
  • His mastery of covers, including the Allman Bros and a super-extended live Neil Young classic
  • A volcanic collaboration with Santana in ’72
  • Contemporary interpretation of perhaps his biggest songwriting milestone, performed by Ledisi
  • Last but not least, perhaps the first-ever airings (in the world) of the upcoming James ‘Biscuit’ Rouse tribute album to Buddy – you will love this!


Also, join me for the latest Jazz Is Dead installment (#14) by Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge, this time with jazz double-bassist Henry Franklin. They just keep honoring the masters.

Here’s your on-demand link for the show. It also streams on WTJX.org on Saturday 9/10 at 7p Eastern. Enjoy,
