I grew up listening to Motown and it has always been a major source of inspiration, connection, and nostalgia. It's great to connect with something that plays such a major part of life. In college I played in a Motown ensemble and it was a blast, something I always look back on with fond memories.
This week's track is "War" by Edwin Starr. He had a handle full of hits and this is one that I've always dug and feels totally appropriate with the state of the world. Not only is it a great message but it funks hard and just makes you want to shake it.
About The Curator - Danny Gordon
Danny's love affair with music started around the time he could walk. He spent countless hours in front of the record player going through his parents collection and experimented with playing violin, piano, and guitar before finding his voice on the bass in his teens.
Danny began playing in local bands in Los Angeles while studying music, eventually landing at Berklee College of Music in 1998. Following his graduation in 2001 Danny returned home and continued his career as a recording and touring bassist, most notably working with former STP singer Scott Weiland.
Danny continues to stay active in the local scene and is a devoted father teaching his children about the music he loves.
