Now Playing at Jaynes: Major Lance “Um Um Um Um Um Um”

We’re some serious Curtis Mayfield fans over here at Jaynes.   From his sweet falsetto singing with The Impressions to his fantastic solo work on his own Curtom label with great songs like Move On Up, this Chicagoan could really kick out the jams.   Some of his greatest songs and productions were for Major Lance including this tres’ existentiel 1964 #1 hit on the Okeh label “Um Um Um Um Um Um”

Check it out.

  1. I don’t think Curtis can be appreciated enough. He truly had the golden touch whether it was singing, songwriting, producing, or playing guitar. He IS Chicago R&B/soul from the late-50s through the mid-70s, SO much more than I think people realize.
