Ending The Year With "Collard Greens And Cornbread Strut"

Sunday, December 27

Engaging tunes are ahead as we end the year 2020. Hear brand new music from the film soundtrack for the Pixar animated movie Soul. The composer Jon Batiste is perhaps best known as the bandleader and musical director for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The soundtrack includes a captivating, less-than-a-minute song called “Collard Greens and Cornbread Strut.” On this edition of Soulsations, we’ll also hear classics by the fabulous Isley Brothers and the Doobie Brothers, and gospel music by PJ Morton featuring Jermaine Dolly, Kirk Franklin, Jermaine Dolly, Lena Byrd-Miles. Plus, this week’s DoubleTake features a 1968 gem by the 5th Dimension, “Stoned Soul Picnic”, and a cover by Kombo.

Here’s “Collard Greens and Cornbread Strut”…
