Soul Manifesto Live!

"Soul Manifesto" is not about the beat...its about the is not taught...its caught. Leader, guitarist Rodney Jones has spent plenty of quality time as a funk it up/pass the peas with James Brown's horn star Maceo Parker (5 albums, 5 years) and with JB himself. Music director for blues/R&B queen Ruth Brown. Known as a straight ahead jazzer Rodney "came out" two years ago on the initial and successful Blue Note CD "Soul Manifesto." In this version the personnel and music is different and it is "Live" with all the heat that goes with a live performance. Thousands go to see jam bands "live." This CD recreates the experience.
