Soul Fixin'

Classic Soul Courtesy of Joy, Tweet, Bilal & Dwele

I came across the video below over at Brown Sugar. I love Joy Denalane with a passion so I was quite excited to hear her take on James Brown 'It's a Man's Man's Man's World.' After a little investigation I discovered the concert was recorded on wax earlier this year in Germany. Joy, Tweet, Bilal, and Dwele joined The Dresden Soul Symphony for a soulful walk down memory lane. The group performed a bevy of soul classics marinated in the sounds of classical music. The combination of soul and classical music may not sound good but the two genres form the perfect combination. Remakes of 'Let's Stay Together,' 'I'll Take You There,' 'Love Train,' A Song For You,' 'Midnight Train To Georgia' and other 60's & 70's soul chart toppers are included on the album. The DVD will be available Nov 11.
