Old is the new New

There’s recently been a resurgence of the classic “Motown Sound” in modern music. Artist like Jamie Lidell, Amy Whinehouse and one of my favorites, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings have been infusing their twenty-first century tracks with both the production and feel that came roaring out of Detroit in the early 1960s.

Loop #41

This loop is dedicated to the legendary Uriel Jones who sadly passed away last week. If you want to learn more about Uriel (and the history of the greatest rhythm section ever), then I highly recommend watching the documentary, “Standing in the Shadows of Motown”.
