Funk & Soul Wednesdays – Marvin Gaye

MarvinGayeMarvin Gaye’s career spanned the entire history of rhythm and blues before he was shot by his own Father at the age of 45.  His legacy carries on, and him and his music will never be forgotten.  Marvin and his band played at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival in 1980, and watching the performance of “Got to Give it Up” always make me smile.  Sandra Lee Akaka absolutely destroys it on the cowbell.  If this doesn’t move you, I suggest you check your pulse.
