Music Break

This is not really a music video I know, but it’s worth your time. Trust me. Artist Hanifah Walidah interviews New York City-based director Patricia McGregor and musician, Greg Tate about their creative process in making “Burnt Sugar presents The JB Songbook,” happen. “The JB Songbook” is a performance centered around the life and music of James Brown. (The show was staged in early October this year at the Apollo Soundstage in Harlem and will be staged in January and February next year; check here for updates.) From Walidah’s site it turns out the interview is part of a creative journalism series titled Tales from the White Wall, “… about creatives and their creative process.”
