About

Legendary entertainer James Brown, live in concert, performing with his world famous 19-piece band. "Soul Brother Number One," "the Godfather of Soul," "the Hardest Working Man in Show Business," "Mr. Dynamite" - those are mighty titles, but no one can question that James Brown has earned them. With 114 singles and 17 #1 hits, few other singers have been so influential on the course of popular music. Through the impassioned fury of his vocals and the complex rhythms of his beats, James Brown was a crucial catalyst in not just one, but two revolutions in American music. He was the figure most responsible for turning R&B into soul in the '60s; and turning soul into funk in the early 1970s. Yet his music is now more influential than ever, as his voice and rhythms are sampled on numerous hip-hop recordings, and music critics hail his innovations as among the most important in all of the 20th Century.
