Hosted by Bob Davis and ELP. Concert Review: Sugarfoot's Ohio Players, (Masters Of Funk) @ Dell Music Center in Philly (July 5th, 2010) The newly refurbished Dell Music Center (formerly the Robin Hood Dell East-Essence of Entertainment) is up and running and running. The venue has all new seats, a good but not great sound system (surely that'll work itself out as we go along) and some really nice landscaping. This will all make summer concert-going in the heart of North Philadelphia enjoyable while maintaining the same low-budget ticket costs of years gone by.
Marvin Gaye Marvin Gaye (April 2, 1939 – April 1, 1984), born Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr., was an American singer-songwriter and musician. Following a period in Europe as a tax exile in the early 1980s, Gaye released the 1982 Grammy Award-winning hit "Sexual Healing" and the Midnight Love album. Since his death in 1984, Gaye has been posthumously honored by many institutions, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[3] Marvin Gaye
The Marvin Gaye Page The Marvin Gaye Page Marvin Gaye "What's Going On / What's Happening Brother" An excerpt from the recently released DVD of some of Marvin's greatest live performances on TV and film, "Real Thing: In Performance 1964-1981," This live performance comes from the long out-of-circulation 1973 film, "Save The Children" with James Jamerson on bass. What's Going On is a song written by Marvin Gaye, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Al Cleveland. Written in 1971 and a song from the first album Marvin Gaye produced, Rolling Stone Magazine listed it as the fourth greatest song of all time in 2004. The inspiration for the song came from Gaye’s brother Frankie, who told him stories of his service during the Vietnam War.

Gil Scott-Heron In 2005, having decided to approach Gil Scott-Heron to suggest that we made a record, I stopped listening to any of his previous output. This was to avoid feeling intimidated by the weight of Gil's musical history, and by the sheer quality of the 14 studio albums he'd released since 1970. Part of my initial suggestion to Gil was that we recorded sparse, stripped down versions of his old songs. We both thought that might make an intriguing album. So we started off recording versions of some of Gil's repertoire, just voice and piano. But our album gradually evolved into something different - "I'm New Here", which as the title suggested, didn't touch on any of Gil's previous recordings (except for "Your Soul And Mine", which is a re-imagining of "The Vulture" from Gil's 1970 debut LP "Small Talk at 125th and Lennox").

::: History of Funk ::: Through the 20th century, other cultures began to accept these forms of music, and began playing this kind of music as well. White America welcomed Jazz and Blues, but for the most part, they blended it with music that they already knew, such as gospel, classical, and folk music. Many other types of music came as a result, like ragtime, big band, swing, and doo-wop. ::: History of Funk :::
