Here's a great upbeat tune that I'm sure was used by The J.B.'s to warm up the crowd before Brown made his appearance.  Unfortunately, I don't have much to comment on this particular track, and I feel it's pretty straight-forward.  I have charted it out on the first page (hopefully the roadmap makes sense) and included the two trombone solos on the second page.

Going back to last week's post about Fred Wesley in the recording studio, here's a YouTube video of how efficient Mr. Wesley can be when he's put on the spot.
