About Columbus Jazz Orchestra Respect Soul Legends

Soul music has its roots in the early parts of the 1950’s. It originated from the African-American community at the start of the 1950’s when the musicians started to combine conventional African American gospel music with the rhythm and blues to come up with a new form of music. Ray Charles is thought off by many as the guy who invented the genre and made it famous with his early 1950 hit I Got a Woman. Over the years we have been lucky enough to witness and listen to names like Jackie Wilson, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Al Green and more recently Christina Aguilera and Adele amongst many others mesmerize us with ever evolving sound that is now very closely linked with Jazz too.
