Shut Your Mouth! “Shaft” is 40?
Shaft celebrated with Detroit-born Patricia Lewis, the founding member of Hot, Buttered Soul, the great back-up group for the late R&B legend, Isaac Hayes.
OhioFUNK friends and supporters already know that the website’s founder, Jack Marchbanks, co-hosts Jazz Sunday, a weekly three hour music program broadcast live on 90.5-FM WCBE Columbus. Remember: Jazz Sunday streams live weekly 3pm to 6pm ET at www.wcbe.org.
In the meantime, you can hear one of Jazz Sunday’s typically informative, music history-oriented interviews. Jack, with support from Jazz Sunday host K.C. Jones, interviewed (courtesy of a timely introduction by SIDney Howard) Detroit-born Patricia Lewis, the founding member of Hot, Buttered Soul, the great back-up group for the late R&B legend, Isaac Hayes. The occasion was the 40th anniversary of the ground-breaking movie soundtrack album, Shaft, reaching the top of the Billboard charts in Autumn 1971.
