The Incredible Skills of Curtis Mayfield. 

Posted: January 25, 2017 in Uncategorized

I am currently reading the autobiography of Curtis Mayfield entitled “Traveling Soul: The Life of Curtis Mayfield”. It is written by Curtis Mayfield’s biological son Todd Mayfield. Curtis Mayfield is one of our most influential composers of all times and we can hear his influence in modern music for he has been sampled by many artist in the music industry. Kanye West Sampled “Move On Up” for his track entitled “Touch the Sky” and it became a hit! Rapper/R&B singer Lauren Hill did a cover of Curtis Mayfield’s song  Entitled “The Makings Of You”. And there are countless others that have covered or sampled a piece of Curtis Mayfield’s songs. As I write this blog post, I am also listening to some of Curtis Mayfield’s music and still seeing the relevance in his songs for they are timeless and much needed in times like these, what we as a people are facing.
