Special Guest MARCUS MILLER!
Join us for a deep dive into the music and stories of your favorite Soul and R&B artists. David Nathan, noted soul music historian, joins host Bethany Dawson every other week to chat about the lives of the people who made the music that continues to move our souls.
With an incredible career as an ‘A’ list musician, songwriter, producer, film composer and recording artist in his own right, Marcus Miller has worked with some of the true legends and icons within contemporary music including Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, Luther Vandross, David Sanborn and many others.
In this extensive conversation with SoulMusic.com founder David Nathan (who first met Marcus in 1981 when Luther Vandross was on the verge of jump-starting his solo career), the multi-award winner recalls just a few of the many highlights of his career to date from his days of playing on a non-stop round of studio sessions in the late ‘70s to co-writing the 1982 now-classic Jump To It with Luther for Aretha and producing the Miles Davis breakthrough album, Tutu.
January marks the 52nd anniversary of Otis Redding’s seminal hit “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of The Bay”. What was it like when Otis Redding burst upon the scene in the mid-60s? Join us as Soul Music archivist David Nathan tells us the impact Otis had on the music scene and how he continues to inspire us more than 50 years later.
