Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'
"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines.

African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show.

Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure.

"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani.

"Even I don't know. I was probably five years old or something infant. Yes, maybe maybe yeah, so it's one of those songs that you just walk right nevertheless when you sit and listen to this ten eleven minutes version nearly. It's just a Marvel especially all the grooving and the instrumental section. And of course James Brown being an abscess showman, you know showing how you can dominate the crowd with just one Groove going over and over and over again now talking about the crowd though. I have to say something and this might come across as a bit of a disappointment, but half of this record is not actually recorded live including lost track but it has such a live feel that when I read about it. I was so disappointed. It was actually done in a studio and I think this was originally a fourth side record. The first two sides were recording in the studio, but the second half of the record was done live and it probably features certain overdubs. So that's the only quote unquote problem with this record because this record has no problems. Okay, this is as perfect as it gets when it comes to Faith music. There's not a single weak track. There's nothing here that is annoying cringe-worthy know everything here is just stunningly good and this is Jacob and I think was probably the best band he ever had boots on base. I mean, what else? Can you get like, sometimes it's so greasy. It's so fat. And I just I'm just speechless another great track that everybody probably knows about it's it's a man's man's world. One of his best. Well, maybe the best ballot if we want to talk about it. Alex what's your thoughts? I don't really have much to add here. I was amazed by the whole musicianship and also him as a performer. Also thought thought that may sound quality was fantastic here. And as far as I can see on Wikipedia James Brown is listed as a producer here. Nobody else James Brown and dead. Yeah. It's only, you know, fantastic of 5-star record. So many good tracks so many famous tracks. It will be definitely be able to pick some highlights. I want to ask you do you think or maybe how did you feel about this double album? Okay. So this was a longer album. Are you kind of used to listening to did you think that it was too long or it was just enough? What do you think? I mean it's sixty four minutes or something like that. It's not that long, you know, and I mean it's definitely worth including more performances here. So I don't mind it being longer think as far as the records we listen to this one really stands out for me. I think no matter how good live at the Apollo..

"It seems like wage his live records are just something else. It's on another level and I think this is a great early example of that. Soul agree, I mean, you know his abilities to perform in sync, you know, he's not going to average single it was a great singer and this is this is the home of record it kind of defines his legendary status, you know, you can only listen to this record and kind of hear that this this was a big deal, you know, so yeah, and then I also have to praise the the the song think I thought it was the highlight here A lotta choose the Highlight. Maybe I'll go crazy or think or I don't know. It's just so good. Maybe by train is also good I train I was thinking I think I have to listen to it a bit more to decide on the absolute highlight, but let's say I let's say I'll go crazy on my part because that's the way the song that comes in right after the intro and it just storms to The Venue. You can really feel it's almost like you're there so have to I have to ask you one thing before we wrap it up with this record. We have a lot of great songs here and I have to ask you as a music Aficionado. Do you know any of if any of these songs would later be you know, heavily covered by other bands. Do you know any examples you mentioned think but do you have more examples I think for sure, but let me see. Plz plz plz on this. Yes, please. Please, please that was later covered by The Who for example and I'm sure there are covers of all go crazy and I trained adjusted they don't pop to my mind right now, but I think a lot of these songs are classic James Brown tunes that you probably heard before even listening to this record. So yeah a very Impressive early classic release to the time when live albums were not that big and we're very hard to record actually, so that's why I am suspicious about whether all of this was actually recorded live the issue that we will revisit later on when we talk about another live album, but still who cares it's about the quality of life music and it's absolutely Stellar. So ratings Alexander, what do you say? Okay. So rating is 8.5 and the standout track is think okay..

"Obviously, I thought if he was the Godfather of punk and that a lot of funk musicians that I personally listened to have drawn a lot of inspiration from him. And also it's probably I would say the inventor of any kind of dance music, you know, any kind of disco-funk e stole stuff. We've covered some similar acts before on this show. So yeah, he he was kind of the main figure in in Dead music world and in that part of the music world, and also one thing that's not quite positive and legendary. I think that there is some controversy attached to his boss name. Do you have maybe some stories to show to share with us later or was was that something else? You know, I'm not sure if I confused him but someone To be fair. There was some controversy regarding his relationships with women, but I'm not sure I'd really want to delve into right now because I'm not so familiar with details. So yes much as he was revolutionary as much as as much of a great musician that he was he also had quite a troubled past but so did many other artists seems that's something that's almost inevitable in many cases and it's something that we try to bring up the show tried to shed more light on the musicians as people they both their good and bad sides, but I think with James Brown I wouldn't really delve into it much right now. Let's just say that He's a legacy is mainly about music and about his political activism as well. I would say and we'll try to stick with that if you don't mind off. Yeah, sure. Sure. I mean we mostly focus focus on their music but you know, I kind of remember that you weren't hesitant to slating North Palm. But now when it comes to other musicians are kind of your kind of hesitant, you kind of want to cover stuff but that's okay. No, I just forgot the details, you know, and I just forgot all the say the nasty details. I'm looking at some stuff right now apparently. He was quite abusive back in nineteen sixty-two. He dated a young singer from his band who was only seventeen years old at the time. I think he was around 30 2930..

"You know, James Brown and and Funk badge. And also we are kind of sticking to let's say the old music so you can never go wrong with that right? I'm also super excited about this episode. I chose the name. This stuff to roll and I'm I always loved it when we go back and when we explore the true Pioneers the true masters of The Craft but not the same thing too much. I'll ask you one question Alexander when somebody says the word Funk, what's the first thing that comes to your mind off spontaneousness? I would say I think you know being spontaneous with your singing and you're playing is the the main thing about funk music Foundation of punk music in my eyes water. Yes, of course, and I think that when it comes to such qualities is not many people that exemplify better than James Brown, but I think behind all that spontaneity that you can hear in James Brown's music. There's a lot of thoughts there's a lot of brilliant one might say ideas. So James Brown is by many considered and rightfully so it almost undoubtedly, so the Godfather of funk and we can say that he's the one of his one of those people who developed this sound may be the most important figure in funk. Music James Brown was born in 1933. And initially he had a lot of success back in 1950s with his group the famous Flames. It was a singing group. So key came from that Soul background, he started off as a soul singer primarily and he stayed a soul singer for the rest of his career one might say because Funk does not exclude song If if I may say so so James Brown went through a number of transformations in his early. And eventually eventually evolved the sound that's so unique and so special that nowadays. We might hear it a lot in so many artists music. We may hear people copying it all the time. So it might have turned into a bit of a cliche but in its infancy it was so exciting and so new and and so long It's basically taking the World by the storm. But another thing that I think worth mentioning when it comes to James Brown is his political activism in addition to move. I think he over the years. He realized that his music could be an outlet for much more and he started incorporating political and social messages in the song and I think he was one of the leading black artists to do. So in in his Fight Against Racism. So Alexander prior to this episode, what was your knowledge of James Brown? What were you familiar with?.

It's a toss up you know but to really arguably amongst the top five most recognizable african-americans of your sure so you know so. Let me draw length reprints for minute? One of the things that some of the folks have been talking to me about is there was multiple personality. Revolution folks talk about like four distinct personalities. Right I is this you have you. You've certainly heard this did you. Did you did you discern the same sort of four? They talk about Steve and shaft in Fred Sanford and Marilyn Monroe like that. You're yeah but I'm not searched. You're out would describe it as four different personalities in pick a number three four five who knows because the so-called personalities were really just about his moods and don't we all have mood swing says much more pronounced in this moods might depend on the music that day or didn't make it might depend on how the show went last night. It might just depend on how he felt when he woke up morning might depend on something that none of us will ever know. That was just purely personal and secret to him. That would motivate a mood. Because you know yeah there was there was I mean you was a comedian. He was hysterically. Funny you know this. He had a great sense of humor. Dripping with sarcasm but funny He could be extremely generous and supportive insensitive. He could also be extremely hard edged and rude and I think the difference was not so much. I don't think it was so much about personalities it's a answer personalities. I think it really was just that he was the kind of person. Maybe this is where he similar miles where he isn't going to employ political correctness or make any attempt to even his moods whereas you and I might say boy.

Msnbc and really who doesn't then check out my other podcast democracy ish where with Daniel Moody Mills and arguing strategize about twenty twenty race may black and progressive perspective. This pandemic requires you to have a level of compassion that I don't believe that white people in America have ever had right you can find. Democracy is wherever podcast or streamed all right back to Toray show. There's a moment in the James Brown movie right where Chadwick Bozeman plays James Before Black Panther and this moment stands out to me where he's he's rehearsing the band and he saying like you know what is a Horn. It's ultimately drum. What is this ultimately address All the instruments are ultimately drums. Is that the way that he looked at it. Yes yes yeah when you start looking at and his so-called funk era starting in sixteen let's say sixty seven with called sweat. It was very much of focus on. I mean all the parts were progressive by nature and with the horns. It was never something just mellow. It was like the intonation. The attack of the horn section had to precursor. It had to be bang so when new horns committed to play their part and it might be a simple riff but instead a DA. Which is what you might hear on Stax volt record or a motown record. And that's not meant to put down their horn players. They had great horn players. Just two different approach. But with Brown with dot data it had to be progressive and he realized that they're also carried with it and excitement level to translate it to the state so it was very much like. When he was making her record he was already visualizing. How will this song work onstage? How rides the emotion that the audience? What's going to take the show to the next level? It was all in the same and he said there's a great story in this early on in James's career. He said you know like you know. In small towns that they didn't have television always know what the artists looked like. And you talk about a Little Richard. Show where a little Richard couldn't do the GIG young James before he was way before he's a star he get up and be little. Richard was little every that exactly this great. Well I I talk in the book a little bit about that because the book is in just about James Brown like to think that somebody who's just in black music of sixties in general could find some Stephan book that would be worth their while even if they're not a James Brown fan and one of those sections is talking about how. How common sadly so common. That was that kind of fake artists. There was a promoter I was I went to junior high high school in Richmond. Virginia were got into radio which led to meeting James Brown but there was a a pretty local soul music scene in in the Richmond area. Major Harris came out at the air couple of the gamble. Frighteners came up to dear Watson came with the all. These guys played in local groups in Richmond. During the time I was there and to make a long story short there were a couple of local promoters that would take some of the local groups that just played local clubs in would would get us paint on the bus. Drifters or the Manhattan or whatever. Group was hot at that time. Take this group one of the club's enrichment throw them in the sin. Take him out to the boondocks somewhere in western Virginia or West Virginia or even parts of Maryland. The Carolinas and and they would perform and the drifters Manhattan's in do this like several times a year. It was mind blowing to me. But it's like the people didn't no no no no no. It was very little television. The black artists weren't getting on TV at all all it. If you were really really lucky get onto Clark. And if you're super lucky you got on it Sullivan. Maybe once but that was it for TV. And if you didn't have jet magazine you had no idea what they look like right particularly if you lived in Boondocks I mean if you lived in Richmond. That's a real city. Got Brits Monette from a newspaper out doctor to get away with daddy enrichment but you can small towns Ranville. Virginia Chesterfield Agenda. Who'd Slant County Virginia works? I mean a lot of this book is about you being a tour manager and moving with James Brown from city to city year after year for those of us who never got to see him perform on stage. I think I saw perform once on stage later in his life but what was what made him so great on the stage he just had knack of knowing what would excite annoyance. I mean obviously at a skill set. That's a no brainer. It was miraculous dancer. Who again did did things that nobody else was doing or could do. It was the Michael Jackson his era. When came to footwork he had elements of the the what tap dancers step brothers in you know people like that that he had seen as a kid so he had some of that but he also had his own imagination and skill set and the fact is he was just really that simple but he also everything. He did was geared to rousing audience to get houses. We say to get approval to get kids to jump up and scream in the same way. Michael Jackson would moonwalk in house down. James Brown moved the mashed potatoes in the house down and be sliding across the stage on a leg up in the air. And you know who else was doing? That I mean Otis. Redding couldn't dance. Great Singer made fabulous records. But you know it was a different onstage. God Love Sam. Cooke of the the hand looks so good. He didn't do anything. Jackie Wilson would get underground. Take your shirt off. Girls take the rest of his clothes off and will be the third song of his said. And that's all he had to say. Everybody had their way of doing but James Wolves like. I'm not to take cloth on Jackie. Wilson. I'M NOT AS PRETTY AS SAM. Cook so I can't just sit there and you know in pose. And he just had a headed nate sense of what would work. And I think it probably goes back to the fact that this was a guy as seventh grade dropout in heavily. Jim Crow Augusta Georgia from a broken family. His mother left him when he was what eight nine years old. His father dumped him a fun. An aunt who was who ran a brothel and that's where he was raised and he used to go out in the streets of Augusta and entertain the soldiers from Fort Gordon. Tap dancing her or what they used to call. Buck dancing whatever the hell it was he was doing so we already had it in education. On what am I gonNa do with Matt Feet? That makes these soldiers throwing extra buck in the CAN. He just had sensible what works. And you know as he became more sophisticated. Detainment hundred really work estates. He just took that attitude with him. So everything was designed toward arousing an audience and he always said if leaves the stage..

"Stubblefield Brunettes the funky Drummer John. Jabo starks Melvin Parker. He had a encyclopedia of great drummers. What's important recognized none of which played the same? I mean each one had distinctive style. If you the least bit James Brown savvy you could put a new James Brown record in ten seconds. Identify which of the drummer is. It's on that track just because they were so stylistically unique and all those guys combined into were just thinking. What do we do with this music? So it's not boring. It's not derivative and they were all of the same attitude and in James was the mastermind. He was the chemist and he was just like. We're going to do stuff that nobody else is doing. And I think it was a case I think the driving factor was he was smart enough to realize that recording artists come and go those that are associated with a styler a trend go quicker when trend is which is that. The artist is sill. If he was going to be the king of soul he was going to make himself so unique. That anybody who wanted sole had to go to James Brown and wherever soul music was going to go he was going to be the one to take it or if he fell behind he was going to be the one to catch up and move forward. He just refused to sound like anybody else or be influenced by anybody else in breeze influenced by the people behind them and one of the talk about is when Busey Collins comes into the band pray and boots. He's a kid when he brings him in but he can clearly recognize this guy's a monster when he brings him in the then the band and the sound changes again sure. Yeah no he was. The James Brown bans were very important. They weren't just backup musicians because they defined whatever stoutly was doing at any given time was really defined by the Group of musicians he had in his genius was not so much as an instrumentalist. I mean he could play organ but he was no threat to Jimmy Smith. He could play drums. He thought but all drummers made fun of behind his back but he had this genius of recognizing the strengths of all the musicians in the band and he would write in rindge music geared to their strengths and stay away from their weaknesses and the perfect illustration has that is how when the pains changed as you mentioned when Buzi Collins and his brother new bunch of young guys. These became the band. In March of nineteen seventy. There was a popular as well known amongst James Brown fans at upheaval in his famous sixties band. Macy's park repeat we L. as Jimmy Nolan. Clyde stubblefield leads guidance and they gave an ultimatum about salaries and working conditions and so on and so on he called their bluff and basically let them go and brought in St Young Group of untrained kids from Cincinnati which included Buzi Collins. Now the sixties being was known for their horn ribs. They were innovative. They were Great Horn player. So they're intonation and everything. What's like way above in did they were all guys who had jazz pedigrees and credit for you actually were not to play with people. Count Basie and so on and Sarah Vaughan and they were guys wanted to be jazz musicians in. Have the skill sets but here comes Buzi Collins where you've got a great rhythm section. Buzi and his brother. Catfish on Guitar. But you've got some burr young trained bar band level horn-players so brown senses that and he's like okay. You know for all these years. My horns were a significant part of my records. While these guys aren't gonNA cut the APP. I can't beat that old horn section. So let's focus on rhythm section so the first record he makes the new band is sex machine. Instead of a Mesa Parker's saxophone break keyboard break in the basin. The Guitar Mixed up higher in the usually were James. Records and Porn. Parts are so forgettable. You don't even miss him a just a case of something and if you listen to his records all the way back to when he first started recording with his own musicians in the late fifties when he had his first real wrote been. The wreckers were always geared to the strengths of that group of musicians and that that really was his genius in recognizing and knowing how to stay away from their weaknesses. And just make saying I rape if you love. Toray show and you miss.

He had a new contract that granted him far more artistic control over his releases. Brown's new era had truly begun however without a site which talk the RB charts made the top forty. In pop for sometime Brown had been moving toward more elemental. Lyric said through in as many chances screams as they did words and more intricate beats and horn charts.
