I've [Jan], been listening to alotta music lately....for Steve's ....BARTLETT ON BASS Jazz Jam on Monday Nights at UNCLE SAMs in Spanaway. [7 pm, ADDRESS...16003 Pacific Ave. in Spanaway.]
I re-discovered Doctor John....he does many tunes from DUKE ELLINGTON....Golly, the Doc has a cool growly [spell?], deep voice, doesn't he? Well, then it hit me.... I've always liked that kinda voice...LEON RUSSELL and HOWLIN WOLF have that kinda voice to me....WOW.
So, I looked up Leon Russell....'cause he's been round for along time, wrote for several artists. I've re-posted one of my stories about Russell below Hope you like it. Jan

This is what the video page says: " Published on Dec 1, 2013
"SOUL FOOD" from the album "ASYLUM CHOIR II" by LEON RUSSELL & MARC BENNO, 1971. No copyright infringement is intended; I do not own the rights to the music or photos used; video is intended only for entertainment. Please support the artists by buying their CD, which has been re-released and is available at the artists' internet sites."
So, what is 'soul food' anyway? Link from WIKIPEDIA. Sounds like it's origins started a long time ago...with the african-American slave trade, it was the everyday food of the captured slaves being shipped to the Americas. Soul Food is still mostly seen and popular in the rural southern states of the U.S. and in the Black American population... We like it...alot.
