As a session player this man played with everyone from Steely Dan, to Aretha Franklin. I remember hearing the bass line on the super funky "Rock Steady" by the queen of soul, Aretha Franklin for the first time as a kid, and I have been a fan of Mr. Rainey ever since.

My current music obsession is jazz fusion. This genre got its start in the late 1960's; many cite Miles Davis' In a Silent Way as the first fusion album.

Pedro Bell: Picasso of P-Funk | Funkin' Good To U | Scoop.it
Way back in the day, one of my favorite things to do after buying a new Funkadelic album was checking out Pedro Bell's sublime cover art while listening to the band's wildly inventive and intoxicating stew of rock, funk, soul and psychedelia.
