This is easily the funkiest take on a jazz standard I’ve ever heard. Apparently, the Kashmere Stage Band were famous for making funky sounds which were the equivalent of the JB’s and the Bar-Kays during their peak in the 1960s. Really amazing stuff.
Let yourself have a funky ass Christmas with James Brown.

I have about zero interest in Burberry Menswear. It’s not my thing, though I can see where it would appeal to those who get a kick out of clothing.

He’s really got quite a future ahead of him.
