November 6, 2017 – The Legacy of Baltimore Soul
Baltimore boasts a rich musical history, from Billie Holliday to Tupac Shakur to today’s thriving music scene. Now, thanks to musician and producer Brooks Long, Charm City’s soul/R&B and hip hop generations are about to converge at the storied Arch Social Club on Pennsylvania Avenue, at a Creative Alliance event this Saturday, November 11, called “Ru-Jac Records & the Legacy of Baltimore Soul.” Ru-Jac was the Doo-Wop, soul music and R&B powerhouse located right here in Baltimore.
Long, who is the Deutsch Fellow at the Creative Alliance, stopped by our studio along with Kevin Coombe (www.DCsoulrecordings.com), who wrote the liner notes for all the re-issued Ru-Jac recordings. It took this younger generation to bring back the wonder of Baltimore’s great musical legacy.
