Madison McFerrin says she's “Shedding the narrative about what it means to be an artist in the music industry.” In fact, she says she's had to learn to shed a lot of things. Like her “identity”. She calls herself an independent singer-songwriter, which is both true and also not entirely the whole story. Questlove calls her a “soul-appella” singer because she first found a wide audience doing solo a cappella songs, just her and a looping pedal. In fact, from pretty much the start of her professional career, she was turning tastemaker heads. That's due in large part, I think, to the quiet determination and courage of her music: just getting out on stage alone with a looper pedal and her voice and creating lush arrangements from scratch every time. And while some of her songs deal with the personal, the sensual, the searching soul, others are more overtly political or topical. Like her songs “Can You See” and “Guilty” both of which address police brutality. Madison McFerrin is also the daughter of Bobby McFerrin, probably the most famous and influential improvising singer alive today. She says that what she does really isn't very related to what her father does, and she wears that legacy loosely and comfortably, drawing on his encouragement and advice but cautious not to seek comparisons. One lesson she does borrow from him is in the way he avoids being placed in any one genre or style. She says, “my father calls himself a folk singer because he sings the music of the folk, and I consider myself to be a soul singer because I sing the music of the soul.” Nonetheless, Madison McFerrin, like her father before her, finds herself skating (if not scatting) on the surface of jazz. On the one hand, as she says, “jazz is at the root of all popular music in America” so if she is a part of the contemporary jazz space, it's because she's a part of the world today. But on the other hand, she is contributing to the conversation whether she meant to or not. This week, she'll perform at the Bric Jazz Fest in Brooklyn. And in addition to playing, she also guest curated the lineup. She has a lot of thoughts about how to bring an audience that reflects her, both in terms of generation and identity, back to jazz. Or maybe, how to lead jazz back to people who reflect a different set of values. She tells me, “I originally thought I was just going to be an artist who showed up… but if you don't adjust now you're going to fall behind. The music industry is changing more rapidly than pretty much any other industry.” www.third-story.comwww.patreon.com/thirdstorypodcast www.madisonmcferrin.com/www.bricartsmedia.org

In the summer of 1969 cameras captured a series of concerts in Harlem featuring artists who would go on to become musical legends, like Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone and Gladys Knight. But for decades no one was interested in the footage until musician Questlove took up the challenge in a documentary that brings history to life.

It's October, and everyone appears to be doing horror movies, so I've gone for something different. I wanted to create content to do with Black History Month....but I'm a white middle aged guy from Scotland, so while I may not be the best person to talk about Black History, I'm still going to talk about it because it's a vital conversation.I wondered how to get the ball rolling, and lets be honest, who doesn't like music?. Steve Wonder, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight & the Pips? All great performers, great musicians, and all at the 1969 Harlem Culture Festival. A festival that was filmed, then forgotten about, until this year.I talk a little bit about the politics, the fashion, the music, and how the festival was organised. I'll admit I don't think I did a great job, I was a bit nervous, but this is a great documentary for any music lover, and deserves to be seen, so put away the chainsaws and horror masks, and enjoy some music for your soul!!If you enjoyed the show please leave a review in Podchaser - it helps us grown and makes us look good.

Author Ben Greenman joins Rhett from his home in New Jersey to talk about the two books that Ben is releasing next month with Questlove and Steven Van Zandt, his approach to success, and why fear of failure can be a good thing.

The summer of 1969 was an extraordinary time- the Stonewall riots ignited the modern LGBTQ rights movement, astronauts landed on the moon, Woodstock shaped the anti-war movement and for Black folks in Harlem, it was the Summer of Soul.The Harlem Cultural Festival was a five week musical event featuring the top Black musicians of the time and was sponsored by the City of New York to quell social unrest surrounding the anniversary of the assasination of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr..Although the Harlem Cultural Festival was jam packed: Stevie Wonder, Mahalia Jackson, Nina Simone, The 5th Dimension, The Staple Singers, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Blinky Williams, Sly and the Family Stone and the Chambers Brothers, (and so many other legends) it was mostly forgotten until footage of the event was discovered and released in the the new documentary directed by Questlove, Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised).WATCH SUMMER OF SOUL: https://www.searchlightpictures.com/summerofsoul/ERTHE ST JAMES: https://www.instagram.com/erthestjamesToday musician Erthe St. James, who is highly influenced by Nina Simone and the music of this era joins us to look at the impact these artists from Summer of Soul have had on music and Civil Rights.Listen as we chat with Erthe St. James about the wonderful music featured in the documentary and what the world would be like if the footage of the festival was widely seen at the time?

We conclude our Summer of Soul series with Mavis Staples and Gladys Knight, two performers featured in Questlove's documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. As a teenager, Mavis Staples performed with her family in the Staple Singers, led by her father, "Pops" Staples. By the late '50s, the Staple Singers was one of the most popular gospel groups in the country. In the early '70s, they crossed over to the top of the pop charts.Gladys Knight's Motown hits with the Pips included "I heard it Through the Grapevine," "Neither One of Us," and "The End of Our Road." She had one of her biggest hits after leaving Motown: "Midnight Train to Georgia."

We're continuing our "Summer of Soul" series with archival interviews with singer Abbey Lincoln and drummer Max Roach. Both were featured in the Questlove documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. Abbey Lincoln started out as a seductive nightclub singer in the 1950s, but after meeting Max Roach, she started performing in a style influenced by modern jazz and the civil rights movement. She evolved into an introspective singer who wrote achingly beautiful songs about love and life. Max Roach was one of the inventors of modern jazz drumming. He helped formulate the language of bebop. In the early 1960s, he recorded some of the first jazz music inspired by the Civil Rights Movement.Also, John Powers reviews the PBS Masterpiece series 'Guilt.'
The Smithsonian has released a new box set condensing four decades of hip-hop history into nine CDs and one 300-page book. Bill Stephney, former Def Jam executive, served as a member of the anthology's executive committee alongside Chuck D, Questlove, music scholars such as Bill Adler, and others. Artist and former Def Jam creative director Cey Adams advised and curated the box set's design. They join to discuss the Smithsonian Anthology of Hip-Hop and Rap.
Today we begin our series Summer of Soul, featuring interviews from our archive with some of the performers showcased in the documentary 'Summer of Soul,' about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. The festival was a series of six concerts that reflected changes in Black music, culture and politics. Over the next few days, we'll hear interviews from our archive with B.B. King, Hugh Masekela, Gladys Knight, Mavis Staples, Max Roach and Abbey Lincoln. We start with Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, who directed the documentary. Questlove founded the band The Roots, the house band of 'The Tonight Show' and is known for his encyclopedic knowledge of hip-hop, funk, soul and R&B. Justin Chang reviews 'Shang-Chi,' Marvel's first superhero film starring an Asian lead.
Questlove-directed documentary 'Summer of Soul' tells the story of the 1969 music festival in Harlem that featured Stevie Wonder, BB King, Mavis Staples, Nina Simone, Gladys Knight and more. It was attended by hundreds of thousands of people and happened the same summer as Woodstock, but was largely forgotten about until now. KEXP's Larry Mizell, Jr. catches up with one of the film's producers, Joseph Patel, to learn more about the festival and how its story was told.

Today we review this summer's critical darling and feel-good documentary 'Summer of Soul', directed by Questlove. Join us as we discuss the music performances, fashion and sociopolitical themes depicted in the film. And awards? All we can say to Questlove is, are you ready?
Introduction: Minutes 0 to 5:30 We'll have an episode out next week and will be off August 28th. We will likely have less episodes in September due to the awards show. I've been watching The White Lotus on HBO and highly recommend it. Chandra is watching tennis. Dirty celebrities: Minutes 5:30 to 17:30 A couple of weeks ago Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher told Dax Shepard on his podcast that they only bathe occasionally and that they don't wash their children until they have visible dirt on them. They also said they just rinse off and don't use soap, which is gross. Dax Shepard said he didn't use soap much either, and then Dax and Kristen Bell said they don't wash their kids until they start smelling bad, which they've doubled down on. The low point came when Jake Gyllenhaal was promoting his partnership with Prada cologne. He told Vanity Fair he doesn't bathe much and claimed “we naturally clean ourselves.” I got hate mail for our coverage of that, in which we told people to bathe. So many people were telling on themselves in the comments too. Chandra's tweet about this went viral. Celebrities like Questlove, Jameela Jamil, Andy Richter, Roxanne Gay and Ellen Barkin retweeted it. The Rock said he bathes three times a day while Jason Momoa promised that he keeps clean. Both Chandra and I bathe at least once a day and often twice a day. We also regularly clean our sheets. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about our childhood memories bathing. It's white privilege to say you don't bathe. There aren't enough parents teaching children basic hygiene and how to clean and do laundry. Royals: Minutes 17:30 to 25:30 Virginia Giuffre has filed a federal suit against Prince Andrew in New York for “sexual assault and intentional infliction of emotional distress.” She's been public with her story for years about being a trafficking victim of Jeffrey Epstein and a victim of Prince Andrew. She previously successfully sued Ghislaine Maxwell. She wants people to know what Prince Andrew did and she's looking for justice. The Queen is protecting Andrew but Prince Charles will surely cut him off once he's king. Prince William wants Andrew to move out of Royal Lodge because he wants to live there. William and Charles now find Andrew to be a liability and they're said to hate his legal team. Andrew and Fergie and their daughter, Princess Eugenie, and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, are now at Balmoral with The Queen. Andrew is said to have been summoned there by his mother for crisis talks. Chandra thinks that William and Charles will find some way to “punish” Andrew and that they'll all take credit for it. She doesn't think he'll get kicked out of his house. Chandra wrote a great line about that which got a lot of attention on Twitter. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about this. It's odd that William wants Andrew's place considering how many properties the Cambridges already have. Comments of the Week: Minutes 25:30 to end My comments of the week are from Driver8 and SarahCS on Hecate's post about how cats are one of the only species who prefer free food to having to work for it. Chandra's comments of the week are from Molly and Beenie on the post about Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson refusing to get vaccinated. Thanks for listening bitches!
Hey, hey, hey, it's a Holly Solo Mini Series as she joins us this week with a Nashville Trip Wrap Par-tay! Did you know she went to Nashville last week to mix and mingle with Podcast People? Did you miss our last episode? WTF, people? The last two weeks have been very important: We shared important intel on “What to Pack” for important trips, business adventures or vacations, “How to Pack,” “What Not to Pack”… it's been A LOT. Anyyyyyway: Holly packed her suitcase, full of Styles by Nolan, and she was totally ready to KICK ASS in Nashville at the recent Podcast Movement Convention. She needed to have her stylish self ready for long-ass presentations, photo ops, AND, a dance party with Quest Love as the DJ, y'all! Because of all the stuff we told you in the LAST EPISODE, you should know by now that you can't just pack everything in your closet for a trip. READ THE ROOM, People! This week, Holly is so happy to report that 1.) She did not overpack 2.) Her carefully planned outfits worked out perfectly, so she was confident at each and every event and 3.) Her new YSL shoes ripped her feet a new one with raging blisters. BUT, she did look AMAZEBALLS in her Saint Laurents. #duh Holly's first adventure into Podcast Convention Adventureland was steeped in uncertainty and anticipation. But, her actual experience turned out to be the BEST DAY EVER DOT COM! Holly tells us that met a SHIT TON of new besties. Podcast People are not basement trolls and are some of THE NICEST PEOPLE she has ever met. Being a podcaster is hard work, and so it was really great to compare notes and share sob stories with some of the best in the business. The best part? Holly reports that her outfits were a smashing success. We know that you were super worried! She felt great, she felt like she looked great, and she got a lot of compliments because she felt confident in clothes that fit her well and reflected her personality. So there you go. So let's go over that, again: She felt great in what she was wearing, because why? Because the clothes that she had fit her really well and reflected her personality. Did you take notes yet? We've only said it 345 times now. We learn about a TON of outrageous and fun new podcasts you need to follow – all run by fucking spectacular women. We also hear about Mark Cuban's appearance at the conference, where he wore freaking dad jeans and an Under Armor t-shirt. NOT. OK. Being a billionaire does not mean you can go out in your workout clothes. IMJUSSAYIN' Join us as Holly explains which of her outfits worked best and why. And, that because her new effing shoes hurt her feet so much, she was not able to over-sweat and ruin her Alexander McQueen dress. Details, people! Details make the diff!! And if you travel, you know what happens at airports: FASHION CRIMES!!! Holly cannot contain herself on this one, so be sure to check out social media this week to see the heinous crimes committed at the Nashville airport. We. Have. Photos. In other news, we have so much coming up in the next few weeks, you really need to subscribe and start planning your days around our podcast. Holly will be hanging out with her BFF Jessica Kupferman, the CEO of SHE Podcasts. Jessica is hosting a Huge Ass Live Conference in Scottsdale, AZ in October, so Holly and Jessica will be broadcasting live as they get her ready for her appearances. They will be taking smack, talking podcasting, talking fashion and cleaning out Jessica's closet in preparation of the October event. And speaking of that, Holly takes some time out to say: ASK HOLLY! ASK NOLAN! What are your wardrobe dilemmas? What do you need help with? Did you see Fashion Crimes you need to report this week? We want to hear from you! The Fashion Crimes Podcast is here to help you be the best you can be. Let us teach you how to be more confident, how to feel better and how to be better. And, hey! If you need a husband, Holly has news on that front, too. (OMG) In This Episode: [00:54] “So I really enjoyed it. I mean, in all honesty, now, I will tell you that I was warned that podcasters and podcast people in this particular industry can be referred to as like, basement trolls. I mean, as far as their wardrobes are concerned. But I beg to differ. It was really cool... people were super, super friendly, creating new relationships and networking. I mean, I had an amazing time. I mean, A-May-Zing.” [1:05] “I felt great, I felt like I looked great, I got a lot of compliments, because I felt confident in the clothes that I had really fit me well and reflected my personality. So there you go. So let's go over that, again, I felt great, and what I was wearing, because why? Because the clothes that I had fit me really well and reflected my personality.” [1:20] “I have a lot of new work coming up: all very different people, with the exact same problem: fashion and style is hard for them. It's too much work, and they don't know where to start. So they call me Yay! Really good on them! I mean, honestly, it takes a lot of guts to admit that you need help with something that you're not familiar with. And, then you reach out to the experts. In this case- that would be me!” [1:35] “And for that convention, we're going to be broadcasting live and recording, because I'm going to her house next week. We are going to be taking pictures we're going to be doing videos, we're going to be cleaning out her closet. So stay tuned for that, because this is going to be an episode that you do not want to miss. Jessica is fun, funny and a hot mess all rolled up into one. But don't worry, Boo! The Holly Train is about to roll in on that one. It's going to be amazing. I'm going to be ripping her new one, pumping her up, building her up. Jessica has got great style. She just needs a little help. It's all good.” [1:50] “I do want to say another reason why my outfits were so successful at the convention is because I did not overpack. I was not confused with a lot of choices because I already decided what I was going to wear each day and night. So I did not have a choice to like screw that up. I had to go with what I packed. And the most major packing mistake that most people make is just packing too much.” [2:10] “I mean, for example, my new besties, Erica and Jamila from the podcast “Good Moms, Bad Choices.” I am not afraid to admit I am totally in love with them. They have a cannabis and sexuality podcast where they talk about all things that they need to make them better moms, like sex and pot. I love them and I went to their breakout session. I mean, I literally stopped them in their tracks and talked to them about their clothes because they looked so great. And of course they're from LA. So, they were super fashionable. We hit it off immediately. Love Them!” [2:40] “I'm going to conclude with the fashion crimes that I did indeed see, which I would like to report were not from the convention. But, they were people that I saw at the airport, the Nashville airport. And don't worry, I have pictures of all these people.” [3:05] “My friend and I have always talked about fashion and fashion crimes. We always say look, if your house is on fire, what is your go-to? What is the outfit you're going to put on to run out of the house? Is it pajamas pants? No, it's not. I'm probably gonna throw on some jeans and a T shirt. And a bra maybe, it probably depends on how much the house is really on fire, grab some tennis shoes and run. I'm not going to grab my pajama pants.” [4:05] “I mean, she worked hard on this and everything did go together. But it was just a little fucking wackadoodle for the Nashville TSA line. But that was just my only complaint about her. I couldn't decide if I loved her or if I hated her, but I just thought she was unusual. And I did appreciate her being eccentric. I did get that, but we could have worked that outfit out a little bit better. But you know, again, I noticed her and she was definitely podcast worthy.” [6:00] “But you know, those are the fashion crimes that I did see. And you know, it was a little scary. I'm not going to lie, but I lived. I worked it out. I loved it and I always enjoy. My favorite thing to do is to sit in the airport and people watch because people are dressed so terribly or they look great, or they look completely normal and fine. But what I've always wanted to do since I started my styling business, I've always wanted to set up an airport booth, like one of those kiosks next to the information booth, and give out free fashion advice because, dammit, people need that, especially in the airport.” [8:30] “Let's reconvene next week while I will be at the podcast in the Queens home of Miss Jessica Kupferman, going through her shit, throwing it away, keeping the best of the best, making her look like a frickin' supermodel and I'm uncovering the beauty queen that she is, while really ripping her a new one, ‘cuz it's all right. We've all been there, and we're going go shopping. We're going to be throwing out her clothes, we'll be keeping her clothes, we'll be donating some of her stuff. It's going to be great.” [9:45] “I'm doing good things in the world people. And I just wanted to leave by saying I want to know what you guys want to hear. Send me a message on my Instagram account, or you can put it on Fashion Crimes Podcast social, whichever you want. My personal styling account is Holly Katz Styling. Tell me what you want to hear. What do you want to hear? Do you want to hear more interviews from designers? Do you want to hear about local designers? Tell me where you live. I will look up local designers in your area so we can interview some people.” [11:00] “I want to inspire you about fashion and style. Let me be your fashion Yoda. You know, I have been called the Dating Yoda, too. And I will say this, I have created a marriage. I create marriages. Did you know that? Did you know that through fashion and style, if you're single, you never know who you're going to meet, you might meet your husband. You don't know!” . Key Takeaways: Planning and packing can take all the stress out of traveling and ensure you will look your best at any event.

And I'm not going to spill shit all over my white dress.” So there you go. – Holly at the dance party with Quest Love wearing Alexander McQueen.
No pictures, please! This week's episode is absolutely stacked with a superstar line-up, and that's after we finish talking about all the celebrities who should stop talking (and the ones we wish would never stop... we're looking at you Gaga...). We're talking about the star-studded Questlove documentary Summer of Soul, and discover not much has changed in 50 years -- iconic duets from Black women are still the tea, white people are still going into space, Jerome has a crush on Black political leaders, and Lin-Manuel is still making surprise appearances.

Kenny and Mike discuss the Hulu film Summer of Soul and spot faith elements presented in the documentary of the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. Summer of Soul is a documentary of the Harlem Cultural Festival held over 6 weekends at Mount Morris Park during the Summer of 1969. Using 40 hours of footage and interviews with participants and attendees Ahmir Khalib Questlove Thompson directed and produced Summer of Soul. Faith Elements Spotted: Story and history are foundational elements in establishing and developing faith as they create and build identity and community. Erasing story and history serves to weaking identity and damage or destroy community. Music tells as well as shapes story, offers shared experiences which bind individuals and isolated groups into communities through which love and care is shared and witnessed. The Diverse Nature of God's Kingdom. John 14:2. The "House"/Kingdom of God is not made up of one room and experience, but many. The diversity of people working together, Sly and the Family Stone, the Mayor with the organizers, the Black and Latin communities in Harlem. The Lyrics of Everyday People.. "We have to live together." The New Creation initiated through the birth of Jesus offers light in the midst of the failures of the flesh and world. Faith in the new age of God's Kingdom allows one to have hope and allow the light of the Son to shine in the midst of darkness. John 1:1-5, 16-18. The hope and healing power of Gospel music.

This week the Vexed Intellects (with special guest Tonya Cole) discuss the continuing saga of rapper DaBaby as famed music festivals Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, & Music Midtown (among others) removed the Interscope Records recording artist from their lineups following controversial comments made during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami. DaBaby has since apologized (twice) for the offensive comments, but continues to lose opportunities. As culture critics DJ Akademiks & Dr. Boyce Watkins question if the "morality" play by the festivals is hypocritical, artists like Elton John, Madonna, Questlove, & others chimed in to publicly chastise the rapper causing many people on the social media timeline(s) to ask if this is considered piling on at this point. Is it virtue signaling? How "accountable" should we hold a young, admittedly uninformed artist? The Intellects unpack the many layers to this topic, plus... Intimacy without commitment, paying for sex, reciprocating effort, "settling" in relationships, attracting the right partner, "boyfriend" d*ck vs "one-night stand" d*ck, & a follow-up to the "what do you bring to the table" conversation. These topics & much, much, more on this episode of The Vexed Intellects! #getvexed & enjoy!

A lot of things happened in 1969, some you may recall, and others not so much. If you're saying to yourself "hey isn't that when Woodstock happened?" then you most certainly are on the right train of thought, you know seeing as this is a music podcast and all. But there was more to 1969 than met the eye, and it had nothing to do with Whitey being on the moon. During the same time, that year when Woodstock was making history and setting the precedence of what we would come to know as the modern-day American-style music festival, something else was unfolding just 100 miles away. A man named Tony Lawrence had a plan in 1967 and after successfully convincing the New York City Parks Department, in 1969 the Harlem Cultural Festival was born. Let me guess, you've never heard of such a thing, and if you have someone probably told you that it likely never happened and was something of an urban legend. Thanks to Questlove, we all now know that this festival that packed nearly 300,000 people into Mount Morris Park (now known as Marcus Garvey Park) in Harlem over a period of six weeks in the summer of 1969 did in fact happen, and man was it a sight to see. This week we're covering "Summer Of Soul" which is Questlove's newest film venture and his directorial debut available exclusively at home on Hulu and in theaters near you. The film focuses on six weeks in the summer of 1969 when people flocked to Mount Morris Park in Harlem to see a myriad of up-and-coming and already famous performers do what they do best—absolutely blow everyone watching, away. This was known as The Harlem Cultural Festival and it was more than just a music festival. It was a celebration of Black history, music, culture, and fashion. It was also used as a vehicle to promote the continued politics of Black Pride. With the blessings of the Mayor, Maxwell House Coffee to sponsor the event, and the Black Panthers to provide security when the NYPD wouldn't—history was made, and now it's available for all to witness. We sat down and watched this film, and so should you. Find out what we thought and so much more on season 4, episode 5 of your favorite documentary filmmaker's favorite music podcast. LET'S GO!!!

"I thought chaos was the only way that I could exist. But now I embrace quiet and I can hear myself think." Now he's venturing into a new arena: He's made his directorial debut with the documentary 'Summer of Soul,' which tells the story of the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival, known as the "Black Woodstock."

Marvel's BLACK WIDOW returns the MCU to theaters for the first time since 2019, but despite the more than capable cast and some provocative ideas, Adam and Josh agree that director Cate Shortland ("Lore") doesn't always find the right balance between the traumatic and the comedic. They have nothing but praise for Questlove's SUMMER OF SOUL, which sees the Roots-founder bringing a keen curatorial eye and potent historical context to his electrifying concert documentary.

In 1969, during the same summer as Woodstock, another music festival took place 100 miles away. The Harlem Cultural Festival featured black musicians like Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder — stars who we might not have glimpsed at this point in their careers. Footage of the festival had been locked in a basement for 50 years, because TV and film companies were not interested in it at the time. Questlove and his fellow filmmakers speak to Audie Cornish about bringing the concert festival to the big screen in their movie, Summer Of Soul, which is also out on Hulu. NPR's Eric Deggans also reviewed the film. Some descriptions of the film from his review are heard in this episode. In participating regions, you'll also hear a local news segment that will help you make sense of what's going on in your community.Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the summer of 1969, hundreds of thousands of fans flooded Harlem's Mount Morris Park to attend the Harlem Cultural Festival, which hosted the likes of Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson, and Sly And The Family Stone. Now, some of that footage is unearthed in a new documentary, directed by Questlove from The Roots, titled Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised).
