Spectral intimacy, otherworldly production and a subtle mix of tempos – the beguiling Seattle vocalist/guitarist’s sophomore has been unequalled all year.

Fela's mother, civil rights leader and feminist, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti , also known as "Bere", was the catalyst who shaped Fela into the revolutionary he would later become. She tirelessly fought to eradicate the colonialism, racism and sexism running rampant through Nigeria, and as a boy, Fela soaked in her wisdom and took great pride in her fearlessness. Sandra Iszadore, a Black Panther who Fela considers one of the most influential women in his life, exposed him to anti-establishment human rights battles being waged in the United States, educating him on everyone from Malcolm X to The Last Poets. Sandra opened his eyes to the injustice in the world around him, and by his own account, introduced him to his own "African-ness."

In 1984, Muhammadu Buhari 's government, of which Kuti was a vocal opponent, jailed him on a charge of currency smuggling which Amnesty International and others denounced as politically motivated. [22] Amnesty designated him a prisoner of conscience , [23] and his case was also taken up by other human rights groups. After 20 months, he was released from prison by General Ibrahim Babangida . On his release he divorced his 12 remaining wives, saying that "marriage brings jealousy and selfishness". [18]

Jazz and pop singer Keely Smith (March 9, 1928 - December 16, 2017) got her first professional singing job at age 15 with the Earl Bennett Band. At 20 she began touring with Louis Prima's band. She and Prima wed (her first marriage, his fourth), and became stars of the Las Vegas lounge circuit. The couple won a Grammy in 1959 for "That Old Black Magic." Other hits included "I've Got You Under My Skin" and "Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen." The two also appeared in the musical film "Hey Boy! Hey Girl!"

During the trio's section, which started off with Ray Charles' "I Got a Woman," the singer ceded the spotlight to Palladino and Jordan as the screen split into three, showing each performer's image equally. Mayer practically invented the guitar "O face" and ran in place, contorting his guitar strings and his face simultaneously, unable to conceal the self-satisfied awareness that he was in the midst of a real jerk-off circle of virtuosity. Even the backup singers had a star-making moment. Guitarist David Ryan Harris sang a soulful ballad, but the showstopper was guitarist Isaiah Sharkey, who strummed a smooth groove into an indescribable foreign liquid sound, like water splattering on rare china.
