If you go back to the beginning, all of the great icons of jazz grew out of rhythm and blues. That’s where they learned their chops.
A decade later, all the great soul musicians and singers took their cues largely from their jazz roots — and so it goes, right up until today. Jazz permeates so much of music.
Soul Nation will take you through all those connections and play you some amazing tunes that connect the dots.
