The catch was that "funk" did not actually exist until Brown introduced it to the world. The new sound was highly—and in some ways dangerously—danceable.
Its long vamps—or extended single-chord spaces—forced folks to either shuffle monotonously or dig deeper for some untapped muse. Musicians were offered the same. In this respect, funk was reminiscent of jazz in creating extended platforms for the talented to create and the mediocre to be exposed.
As a result, Brown's band turned into a testing lab and boot camp for innovative musicians. They came in, pushed the rhythm and arrangement innovations of "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" even further, and then left, taking their degrees in funk with them.
During the s, an even longer list of funk artists found mainstream success, including Sly and the Family Stone, Chaka Khan, and the Ohio Players. But Brown's influence did not end Jamaican Hot Nights - Paris Reunion Band - For Klook. Bythe self-proclaimed "Minister of New New Super Heavy Funk" was writing songs with even more extended vamps filled with even more complex and overlapping rhythms.
In fact, rhythm became everything. Horns, guitars, and sax joined the drums and bass in one all-inclusive rhythm section, and melody and harmony all but disappeared as the entire band lay down overlapping, crosscutting rhythm lines. Even Brown's vocals joined in the rhythm domination. Instead, Brown let his lines pop, grunt, and explode out of his mouth like verbal rim shots.

In this age of digital appropriation, he is by far the most heavily sampled artist. It would be hard to overstate the importance of James Brown to American music. It would be just as hard to understate the deprivation and excess that came before and after his most productive Papas Got A Brand New Bag - Charles Wright & The Watts 103rd St Rhythm Band - Original Album Series, though. Brown's younger years were filled with torment; born in —and subsequently pronounced dead by the delivering midwife—he was turned over to a brothel-running aunt in Augusta, Georgia, when his parents separated in Luther Ingram.
