'Boy, you guys just wanna let you all know that keeping MY mouth shut...IS so hard.'
So, let me look up CURTIS MAYFIELD and HERE, 'cause he's cool and it will keep me kinda busy...'til I hear from our mystery Sax Man.....O.K?
Let's see...Mayfield gained fame in the 50's and 60's with THE IMPRESIONS....he was a blues/funk guitarist, singer/song writer. Worked hard in the civil rights movement....cool.
Here's a guote from WIKIPEDIA: " Mayfield is regarded as a pioneer of funk and of politically conscious African-American music. Being one of the most celebrated figures in the genre of soul and 20th-century music," Listen to this.... PEOPLE GET READY, by Curtis Mayfield, by .
: winner of both the Grammy Legend Award (in 1994) and theGrammy Lifetime Achievement Award (in 1995), and he was a double inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, inducted as a member of the Impressions into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991, and again in 1999 as a solo artist. He is also a two-time Grammy Hall of Fameinductee."...all this I found in WIKIPEDIA.
Have a great Thanksgiving.
