Soul music is not background music. It is not music to shop to. It is not music to eat dinner to. Soul music is not something that plays while a service representative gets back to you.

Soul music is Etta James.

I find myself greatly regretting that I never got my derriere down to see her, at one of her many Jazz Alley appearances.

Indeed he did, Terry, and produced Etta's first record, among other achievments.

Only saw Etta once myself, in the early eighties. The impression remains indelible.
