MUSIC MONDAY: Weekly Playlist From GBN – Soul Jazz from Herbie Hancock, MeShell Ndegeocello, Art Blakey and More (LISTEN)

GBN Contributor Marlon West is back again this week with his excellent curation of a sub-genre known as “Soul Jazz.”

In Marlon’s words:

“Heavily influenced by funk, gospel, and R&B, Soul Jazz emerged in the late 1950 and ‘60s. Artists like Jimmy Smith, Shirley Scott, and Art Blakey were not going to take the popularity of soul music laying down. They created music designed for jukeboxes of the time, and is still endlessly sampled and influential today.”

Enjoy!
