This is what American music is.
Blues, soul, James Brown, horns, motown, honesty, all of it.
Charles Bradley has lived a tough, tough live and spent 42 years until he got known.
Playing at small bands covering as James Brown Jr.
And Charles Bradley has a lot of James Brown in him. The honesty, the screaming, the putting it all out there, it’s glorious.
He is exactly the kind of music that should be on top of the charts. Popular music does not require Autotune.
Let’s bring the soul back to American music. I wish Charles Bradley nothing but the best. And keep some tissues ready for this superb documentary. It’s free with Amazon Prime I am not sure about Netflix streaming.
If you liked “Searching for Sugarman” you would like this.
