HAPPY B-DAY CURTIS

Curtis Mayfield would have turned 72 today. The immensity of his genius is something I am continually rediscovering. Here’s just three cuts to remember him by…out of seemingly a countless bounty.

    For some reason Curtis’ name doesn’t come up as often or as quickly when you talk about the all time greats. It comes up, don’t get me wrong, he is hardly forgotten or lost. It just doesn’t come up enough. He had a great falsetto, could funk and was a great, soulful guitar player. Oh, and he wrote dozens of great songs.

    I would love to see what he would have come up with in the age of neo soul if he hadn’t had that accident and later passed.
