"You can't stop us on the road to freedom.
You can't stop us cause our eyes can see.
Men with insight, men in granite,
Knights in armor bent on chivalry."
Ladies and gentlemen, that is the great Pee Wee Ellis who is causing the top of your head to explode. What else has he done? Well, for starters:
"Ellis played with the James Brown Revue from 1965 to 1969. While with Brown he arranged and co-wrote hits like "Cold Sweat" and "Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud". In 1969 he returned to New York City. He worked as an arranger and musical director for CTI Records' Kudu label, collaborating with artists like George Benson, Hank Crawford and Esther Phillips. In the late 1970s he moved to San Francisco and formed a band with former Miles Davis sideman David Liebman. Between 1979 and 1986 he worked with Van Morrison's band as an arranger and musical director and then again from 1995 through 1999."And.... and.... well, it's seven in the evening and I've got an appointment with Hemingway's Hamburgers that I've got to get moving on. Lovely late summer twilight's coming on. I'm going out for turn around the park and the trees with this tune fading. See you in the morning.... same time, same place.
"You can't stop us on the road to freedom...
You can't stop us cause our eyes can see ...."
