A Retrospective: Celebrating the Unsung Heroes of Southern Soul Music
The second in a series of four evenings of discussion and performance focusing on musicians from the 1960's and their moments of impact on American culture.
FILLET DE SOUL: Celebrating Unsung Heroes of Southern Soul Music. Hosted by Jerry Zolten with very special guest Billy Price.
By the 1960s, the music called "soul" was a powerful current in American and world pop music. These days, the words "soul music" mostly bring to mind the catchy tunes, fancy coordinated outfits, and meticulously choreographed stage moves that are the legacy of Detroit and Motown - which is alright - but not nearly as well-known are the deep-down delineators, the artists who, rooted in black gospel, laid the foundation with pulsing heartbeat rhythms and voices with the ability to wring every drop of emotion out of the words. O.V. Wright. Otis Clay. Dyke and the Blazers. James Carr. Bobby Bland. Who better than soul master Billy Price to turn the lovelight on these artists in an evening of conversation, exploration, and revelation profusely illustrated with performance clips and a live song or two.
