Tower Of Power

After more than four decades of continuous funk-influenced soul, Tower Of Power is still alive, well and kicking. Having toured with the likes of Sly Stone and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the ten-piece continues its streak driven by a legendary five-piece brass section, spiced up by syncopated percussion and completed by the vocal range mastered by Larry “LB” Braggs that’s nothing shy of impressive. Though they’re touring on 2009 release The Great American Soulbook—in which they reimagine favorites from legends like Aretha Franklin and James Brown—18 studio albums worth of material mean you won’t have the opportunity to get bored.
