King, Celia Cruz, Bill Withers, Miriam Makeba, The Crusaders, Muhammad Ali, Sister Sledge, Big Black (no, not, haha, the Steve Albini Chicago band), Lita Bembo & Les Stukas, “Sweet" Charles Sherrell and the J.B.’s, OK Jazz featuring Franco and Tabu Ley Rochereau & L’Afrisa International plus more!

"An unusually resonant time capsule, one that weaves together theatrics, musicianship, cosmopolitanism and sharp political critique in a vibrant look-back that's at once celebratory and wistful." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

"It's impossible not to be moved." - Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"It packs the emotional and historical power of a heady 'family gathering' celebration of African and, to use the term then in fashion, Afro-American pride." - Dan DeLuca, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Watching the Godfather of Soul on the big outdoor stage, you think back to his appearance in The T.A.M.I. Show a decade earlier. And then you think: I feel good." - Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"A window into a time when anything seemed possible." - Kelly Vance, East Bay Express

"B.B. King. Bill Withers. Miriam Makeba. Celia Cruz. And James Brown, earning every inch of the title, "Godfather of Soul," who all by himself probably deforested a few acres around Kinshasa with the volcanic blast of his set." -Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
