When Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were queued up for an historic Pittsburgh performance in 2023 at the Pittsburgh Int’l Jazz Festival, The Soul Show had two interview opportunities. You may have caught a snippet in the week leading up to the festival, but there is plenty more, including remarks on Janet Jackson’s success, the mentorship from RRHOF inductee Clarence Avant, the Prince effect, and their formula for partnership longevity. This week on TSS, I weave the full conversation narrative between highlights of the JJ/TL personal and production discography. It’ll be The Time, New Edition, S.O.S., Alex O’Neal, and so on and so forth. Join me at WZUM-FM, WZUM.org, or any of the other broadcasts/streams.
