THE GRUNTS BEHIND THE GODFATHER


Here's another vital back up band, the J.B.'s. They're responsible for nearly all the grooves of James Brown's seventies work, and that of his extended funky family (Bobby Byrd, Lyn Collins, et al). I'm short on time today, but I encourage you to do a little digging. You can start with their Wikipedia page.
