I’m rather overdue on this one; apologies.

I mentioned back in August that I was the moderator for a fantastic conversation with author RJ Smith and drummer James Gadson about the life, times and influence of James Brown. This was hosted at the Crawford Family Forum and while there’s no video from the event, there is audio and I’ve uploaded it as a podcast for you all.

The One: James Brown’s life, music, legacy. August 14, 2012

By the way, this seems somehow apropos: Mystikal channels JB on his new “Hit Me.”

It’s awesome. JB LIVES!
