While the heyday of soul may be fifty years in the past with the likes of Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, and Jackie Wilson, a new swell of artists influenced by these early pioneers is rising and moving audiences around the country. Marked by strong frontmen and women, these folks have moves and energy straight from a James Brown playbook and backing bands that have licks of their own. Be prepared to have your soul stirred and, if you’re like me, end up with a goofy, strained grimace on your face and an air mic primed for lip syncing.
Do you want to try some new music and not spend ANY money? I'm talking free, folks! Your tax dollars at work.
Yes, the Library has many CDs (22,085 titles today, to be exact) but that's not what I'm talking about right now. Bet you didn't know we had streaming music that you can listen to day or night and never leave your home. All you need is a Denver Public Library card, an Internet connection, and Adobe Flash Player 9 or higher (free).
