Marvin Gaye Sings the United States National Anthem at the 1983 NBA Allstar Game
 
02:55
In 1983, at the NBA All-Star Game, Marvin Gaye stole the show with his singular rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner." At the time, singing the anthem was for the most part a straightforward job — shoulders square, sing it straight like the hymn that it is. But for this game, Gaye took the anthem to a new level. Lon Rosen remembers it well — he was the director of promotions for the Los Angeles Lakers, the team hosting the All-Star game that year. He says Gaye's one rehearsal was bumpy. By this point in his life, Gaye was battling a serious drug addiction. And on game day, the singer was running perilously late. But then the lights dimmed, and Gaye made history. One year later, Marvin Gaye was dead, shot by his own father.

David Peaston performs "Everything Must Change" at "Showtime at the Apollo"

It's been an unfortunate week for R&B and soul. Yesterday (Wed., Feb. 1) -- on the same day as "Soul Train" founder Don Cornelius' death -- R&B/gospel singer, David Peaston, died at 54 years old. Peaston's cause of death is inconclusive, according to St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Peaston battled with diabetes and had both of his legs amputated, starting with his right leg in 2004. In an interview with Post-Dispatch, Peaston expressed disappointment in himself over his illness. "I didn't want to be back in the public. I wasn't embarrassed or ashamed, but I felt I let myself down and, therefore, I let everyone else down. It was my fault for being sick, and I didn't want anybody to see me like that," Peaston said. Here, David performs "Everything Must Change" at "Showtime at the Apollo"

Marvin Gaye - I Want You
 
04:33
"I Want You" is Marvin Gaye's 1976 hit song released on the Tamla Motown label. The album was his first recorded studio material released in three years and marked a change in direction for Gaye, leaving his trademark Motown soul for funky, light-disco soul. Much of Gaye's music encompassed spirituality, sexuality, and vulnerability. Originally conceived by Motown songwriter Leon Ware and his songwriting partner "T-Boy" Ross, it was originally intended to be included in Ware's Musical Massage album. When Ware, who was also signed to the label as a solo artist, presented the rough draft of his album to Motown CEO Berry Gordy, the mogul was appreciative of the songs, including a rough version of "I Want You". But after hearing it, he convinced Ware to give some of the songs to Marvin Gaye, who was coming off the release of his acclaimed 1973 record, "Let's Get It On", his final duet recording with Diana Ross and a commercially successful live album, and was coming off a US tour at the time. Marvin, who called himself a perfectionist, had struggled with creating a follow-up album to "Let's Get It On". When Ware played Gaye the rough draft of "I Want You", Marvin, then inspired by his relationship with his nineteen-year-old girlfriend, Janis Hunter, was motivated to record a convincing performance of the song, which was about a man trying to convince a wayward lover that he wanted the woman to love him as deeply as he loved her. Purportedly recorded in Marvin's Room, the singer's new recording studio in Los Angeles, Marvin also reportedly recorded the song while lying on his back of his sofa according to Ware, who said that he couldn't see Gaye at first but then discovered a laid-back Marvin delivering the song in his trademark tenor vocals. Diana Ross, whose brother T-Boy co-wrote the song, remade "I Want You" for her "I Love You" album, released in 2007. Robert Palmer released a medley of "I Want You" and another Marvin Gaye song, "Mercy Mercy Me" in January, 1991. This single reached #9 in the UK charts. "I Want You" is also the name of Australian television star Toni Pearen's debut single from 1993. Madonna recorded the song with British trip-hop group, Massive Attack. The cover was featured on the tribute album "Inner City Blues: The Music of Marvin Gaye" as well as being something to remember and be collected, with a career spanning over more than a decade, it's no wonder that many of today's artists continue to honor and try to emulate Gaye. Although no longer a physical presence, his existence as an artist is one that is sure to be a vital part of the millennium and beyond.

Don is reputed to have said that this would be the first and last time he would ever boogie down the Soul Train line. Rest in Peace, Love and with Soul, Don. Thanks for the Soul Train memories!

Birdland
 
05:21
Weather Report (Live - Midnight Special) "Birdland" is a jazz instrumental composition by keyboardist Joe Zawinul that debuted on the Weather Report album Heavy Weather in 1977. A jazz-fusion piece, it achieved unusual commercial success and became a jazz standard, entering the repertoire of many groups and bands, including Buddy Rich, Maynard Ferguson's big band, and The Manhattan Transfer, who recorded a vocalese take on the tune with lyrics by Jon Hendricks. An uptempo version (with a slight rap introduction) appears on Quincy Jones' 1989 album Back on the Block, with vocals by Kool Moe Dee, Big Daddy Kane, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. The original version is easily recognized by an artificial harmonic intro played by bassist Jaco Pastorius. "Birdland" was named after the New York jazz club Birdland on 52nd Street, which in turn was named after jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker, nicknamed "Bird". The song is a tribute to Parker and the club that Zawinul frequented as a young musician (and where he met his future wife).
