I'm a day late to learn of the loss of NewOrleans music institution ArtNeville. If you're just beginning your journey into VintageSoul, studying the records associated with Art Neville is a great place to start
In addition to his 1950s work in RhythmNBlues, Art was one of the foundations of NewOrleansSoulMusic as well as funkmusic in general. Along with his band The Meters, Art appeared on dozens of hit singles by the likes of LeeDorsey, DrJohn, LaBelle, & many more.
and then of course, the entire NevilleBrothers catalog that kept funky/soulful music alive during the 1980s
We've lost WAY too many New Orleans legends recently. My heart goes out to everyone to whom this music has meant so much.
