The Charles Stepney Story

Q:What do Common, Jay-Z, Earth Wind & Fire, Minnie Ripperton and Muddy Waters all have in common?

A: Well, apart from being great musicians - they've all either sampled from, or had music written by Charles Stepney. I'll admit I didn't know him by name but had definitely heard his music. Not only did he write music, he was an arranger, producer, and musician who helped define the famous 'Psychadelic Soul' sound.
