ADMIN TITLE LIST
Gravity.jpg

わたしにとってパワーの源、ジェームス・ブラウン。
でも昔っからソウル/ファンクのファンだったわけではなく、スタートはこの“GRAVITY”から。このアルバムがどうというより、この中の
“Turn me loose,I'm Dr.Feelgood"これだ!
この曲だけで惚れてしまった。

ジャズ音楽家のマイルス・デイヴィスは彼の影響を受けたと告白しており、ヒップホップが広まるにつれ、彼のリズムの使い方が数多くの歌のインスピレーションになっており、その他ハウス音楽などダンス音楽全般において彼とそのバンドのリズムパターンが使用、引用されている。代表曲『Get Up (Sex Machine)』はあまりにも有名。

また、驚異的な記憶力で知られており、無名時代からの世話になったDJや関係者の名前などを覚えており、相手はどうせ忘れているだろうと思っていたら、JBがフルネームで覚えており「あの時はありがとう」と言った等と言う逸話が残っている。

James Brown (born James Joseph Brown, Jr. on May 3, 1933 in Barnwell, South Carolina) is an African-American entertainer, recognized as one of the most influential figures in 20th century music. As a prolific singer, songwriter, bandleader and record producer, Brown was a seminal force in the evolution of gospel and rhythm and blues into soul and funk. He has also left his mark on numerous other musical genres, including rock, jazz, reggae, disco, dance and electronic music, and, most famously, hip-hop music.

Brown began his professional music career in 1953, and skyrocketed to fame in the late 1950s and early 1960s on the strength of his thrilling live performances and a string of smash hits. In spite of various personal problems and setbacks, he continued to score hits in every decade through the 1980s. In the 1960s and 1970s, Brown was a presence in American political affairs, noted especially for his activism on behalf of African Americans and the poor.

Brown is recognized by a plethora of (mostly self-bestowed) titles, including "Soul Brother Number One," "Mr. Dynamite," "the Hardest-Working Man in Show Business," "Minister of The New New Super Heavy Funk," "Mr. Please Please Please," "Universal James," and the best-known, "the Godfather of Soul." He is renowned for his shouting vocals, feverish dancing and unique rhythmic style.
