30-Minute Music Hour

JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound

Season 4 Episode 4 | 29m 35s

Described by MOJO Magazine as one of the hottest soul acts in America, Chicago's J.C. Brooks is a sexy soul man of the highest order. He and the Uptown Sound are among the new vanguard of groups reacquainting an entire generation to the music of James Brown, Otis Redding and Curtis Mayfield. They're not a revivalist act, though. "Think Otis Redding fronting the Stooges," is what Brooks says.
