We’ll also feature his DoubleTake, "Goin’ Up Yonder" by Walter Hawkins featuring Tramaine Hawkins and a jazzy cover by Wichita’s Skinny Hightower that features Bongo Bobby on percussion. Plus classics from Cheryl Lynn, El DeBarge, The Bar-Kays and Charles Wright & the Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band.
