RIP Jimmy Castor

New York born singer and saxophonist Jimmy Castor passed away this week at age 71. We salute this man for influencing a generation of music fans, b-boys and b-girls and seekers of the beat. Jimmy’s music greatly influenced the beginnings of early hip hop culture and his work has been recognized by many as a significant part of our modern day pop culture history. His second album as part of the group, the Jimmy Castor Bunch and single by the same name, ‘It’s Just Begun’ [1972, RCA] will go down in dance floor and music sampling history as one of the all-time greats.

Here is some of his best work that will surely live on.
