Bruno Mars at the Grammys and the spirit of James Brown


I spent a couple of hours watching the Grammys last weekend. I am neither qualified nor interested in providing a critique of the show or the winners or much else to do with the program. The one thing I really liked was Bruno Mars. Maybe that's because, to my mind, he and his band are seriously retro, and, as I told a friend, I hope the James Brown estate got paid. It's all good. Great to see.

Like I said, I really like what they did on Sunday: the energy, the style, the tightness of the act, and especially the super-cool dance steps coming from the horn section.

This is the clip from the show.
