Jazz Record Art Collective:Sam Cooke's Mr. Soul

 —  —

Fulton Street Collective, 1821 W Hubbard St., Chicago

The Jazz Record Art Collective is delving into a little soul on Valentine's Day when the Saalik Ziyad Group performs Sam Cooke's’ 1963 release MR. SOUL on Wednesday, February 14 VALENTINE'S DAY, at Fulton Street Collective.

"In 1963, Sam Cooke was a busy man releasing two records on RCA Victor. One of those being Mr. Soul, which was produced by Hugo and Luigi, a producing team and released in February . Besides Cooke, this record features a string section along with a rhythm section that accompanies Cooke. Although the strings can sometimes be over orchestrated, Cooke's soulful voice and all his nuances makes this record a record that shouldn't be ignored." ~Lenard Simpson

Saalik Ziyad Group is: Saalik Ziyad - Vocals Ed Beard - Piano Zachary Biggus - Guitar David Williams - Bass Andy Sutton - Drums
