Chaka Khan - Ain't Nobody (Live at North Sea Jazz Fest)

I'm Chaka Khan's biggest fan. I greet people and say goodbye with the phrase "Chaka Khan". Ask any of my friends! Have never ever seen or heard Chaka Khan with a sloppy band. Always love to watch both early and recent films of of the Queen of Funk and happy to have found this great live take which is new to me. GC

The North Sea Jazz Festival happens each July.

The first edition of the North Sea Jazz Festival took place in 1976 in the Nederlands Congresgebouw in The Hague. In those early days there were six venues, three hundred artists and about nine thousand visitors. In the very first festival year, internationally renowned jazz legends performed, such as Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz, as well as most Dutch avant-garde artists.

In 2006, the festival moved to its current, bigger, location in Rotterdam. This year, the festival will host more than a thousand musicians, spread out over 150 performances and thirteen different stages. Though the numbers of visitors were between 65.000 and 70.000 in recent years, the festival still manages to retain its intimate character.

Willoughby

Came across Elliot Glass on YouTube a while back and immediately loved his films of LA indie bands shot in what seems to be various living rooms. He has amassed a bunch of great recordings. His crew at Little Videos records the sound beautifully and the photography/video work is pretty darned good and always fits. Here is another cool shoot of local Echo Park/Los Angeles band, Willoughby.

Nina Simone - Ain't Got No...I've Got Life

One of the greatest artists and civil rights activists in the history of modern music, also known as The High Priestess of Soul, Nina Simone was a true original.

This live concert footage, captured in the summer of 1969 when she performed at the Harlem Cultural Festival in Harlem's Mount Morris Park, is a treasure. Enjoy! GC

Nina Simone - Ain't Got No...I've Got Life (Live in Harlem 1969)

Here is some more live concert footage shot in London in 1968, where she performs the same song, for a audience in Europe, at a slightly slower tempo and cops a subdued groove than the take above. Enjoy!

Don Cornelius - Pioneering Music Television Innovator - 1936-2012

So sad to hear about the death of the legend, Don Cornelius. Had the privilege of meeting him and shaking his hand at the 1995 NATPE Convention in Las Vegas where I told him how badass I thought he was. He didn't even crack a smile, but it didn't matter. What a great man, who paved the way for so many great artists. GC
