Fred Wesley & Abraham, Inc.

Imagine yourself at a Parisian club, watching trombonist Fred Wesley perform his funk jam, “Breakin’ Bread,” in the company of fellow James Brown alumnus, saxist Pee-Wee Ellis. During a solo break, a black-suited, middle-aged gent lets fly with wild, trilling klezmer licks on clarinet, and then a bespectacled young guy wearing a brown sweater over a stiff-collared shirt wanders in from the wings and starts rapping a verse from a sheet of paper, exhorting you to wave your arms “like you do care.”
