 .
Those we have lost this year duly remembered:
We’ve lost so many this year, perhaps more a sign of the age group I  / we are in…
Maurice White – Maurice was a true pioneer, trail blazer and founder of one of the last great big bands: Earth Wind & Fire.
I have appreciated the varied, skilled and positive grooves Maurice brought us through out most of my life.
Prince – On Prince I could write for days, one of the greatest performers, musicians and composers of the last 100+ years, his influence touched so many genre’s we now take for granted to the point that his full significance may be lost on the generations who were not around to see his full impact being gradually cemented into the foundation of what followed in so many genres from Hip Hop, House, Soul, 2Step, Slow Jams Neo Soul and Rock and EDM to name a few. Also a great Jazz spirit. Thankfully Prince was so prolific and left us a huge body of work.
David Bowie – I wasn’t a massive Bowie fan, but I was a fan, more of his material beyond his biggest ‘Ziggy’ hits period.  I admired his style and vision, a true performance artist right up to the last second of his life.
Scotty Moore – The raw sound of Scotty’s guitar was one of the players that made me want to play the guitar. I was lucky enough to meet Scotty and discuss guitar playing with him, a priceless experience for me.
Rod Temperton – A true UKSoul, Jazz-Funk and UK songwriting pioneer.
George Michael – George was many things to many people, including a suburban Soulboy and Soul DJ at one point, and also a great UK singer songwriter who’s Soul influence could often be heard in his music.
Rudy Van Gelder – A pioneering producer of my favourite record label, Blue Note Records.
Norman Mayers – Norman was a kindred spirit over in LA, USA supporting KTF from afar with his “Nu Soul Mag” and putting on comparable events over there in LA.
.

& just some of the many others we lost this year duly remembered:

Sharon Jones, Stanley Dural (Buckwheat Zydeco), Natalie Cole, Dave Mancuso, George Martin, Prince Buster, Phil Chess,
Nicholas Caldwell, Otis Clay, Clarence “Blowfly” Reid, Willie B Holland, Vanity aka Denise Matthews, Phife Dawg, Larry Payton, Leon Haywood, Billy Paul, Reginald Torian, Marshall “Rock” Jones, Wayne Jackson, Jerome Teasley, Bernie Worrell, Allan Barnes, Toots Thielemans, Clifford Curry, Trisco Pearson, Kashif, Jimmy Williams, Leon Russel, Colonel Abrams, Joe Ligon, Alphonse Mouzon, Mic Gillette, Bobby Peterson, Robert Stigwood, Bongo Eddie Folk, Papa Wemba,
Nicole Ferraz, Colin Favor(missed Colin in last years’ list).   R.I.P.
.
.
Looking ahead to 2017:    Please keep an eye & ear out for these 2 great performers:
Cynthia Erivo & Jodie Abacus – both have blessed a KTF stage
earlier in their careers & it seems now is the time many more will
know about their entertaining talents. Good luck to all the
music creatives still pushing out there.
.

Thanks for the music everyone.

.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading these charts over the years.
Thanks for reading and listening.

About Jocelyn Brown:
Jocelyn Brown is a revered vocalist in the world of Soul, Disco, Funk
& House music from her work with Salsoul Records, Inner Life,
Incognito, Todd Terry, MAW’s NuYorican Soul & her own solo work.

Jocelyn Brown is a woman with a powerful, soul shaking voice that
reaches out with extended arms and engulfs your musical desires.

“I Got The Power” a sample of Jocelyn’s voice Snap’s international one
single “The Power”, totally astonished the Artiste herself when
arriving in a club for a performance and hearing her voice repeatedly.
She witnessed, first hand, the audience’s response to the powerful
vocals featured on this hit. “I think it is great that people love and
use my voice”, says Jocelyn, “as long as I can make people happy with
it, I feel like I am doing my job!”

And doing her job she is! In fact this seasonal musical veteran began
singing in public at the age of three in the church, and at gig’s with
her family. She then first gained national attention with the release
of her debut album for Warner Brothers Records “One From The Heart” in
1984. With cuts produced by Jellybean Benitez and the teams of Hubert
Eaves/ James Batton and Russ Titleman/Rob Mounsey, Jocelyn featured
eight powerful cuts which include hits like “Love’s Gonna Get You” and
the perennial Club Classical “Somebody Else’s Guy” written by Jocelyn
and her sister Annette.

However, as modest as she is, Jocelyn has established quite an
impressive portfolio working with stellar names such as Luther
Vandross, Bette Midler, John Lennon, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson,
Roberta Flack, George Benson, Teddy Pendergrass, Culture Club, Masters
At Work & many others.
