The R & B Club is a group founded by music aficionado Ashley-Dior Thomas, entrepreneur, broadcaster, and writer, Marcus Dowling, plus well-respected journalist Justin Tinsley, to celebrate the legacy of soul music. Foremost in this quest is the "Diary of an R & B Legacy" series, which will highlight key artists and their legacies from R & B's golden era.
Up next the R&B Club celebrates Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis!
Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis have been songwriting and producing for R&B icons for over three decades, and the renowned duo have more than 100 gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond albums to show for it.
While it's common knowledge the duo had a heavy hand in Janet Jackson’s illustrious career, Boyz II Men, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, George Michael, Earth, Wind and Fire and many others have also been the beneficiaries of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis’ creative genius.
The two have more Billboard number ones than any other songwriting and production team in music history and are widely regarded as one of the greatest production tandems to ever grace the industry.
On Saturday, January 18th, from 1:30-3 PM, join Thomas, Dowling, and Tinsley as The R & B Club both listens to, and discusses at-length, the impact and legacy of iconic soul music.
