The True Groove All-Stars, members of Tomas Doncker’s True Groove Records family, have released a cover of James Brown’s classic “I Don’t Want Nobody” with music legend James Chance on vocals. The track was recorded to celebrate Chance’s recent signing to True Groove Records. James Chance has influenced several generations of artists from many different mediums including: The Red Hot Chili Peppers (whose rhythm section has backed James up on West coast tours),”The Simpson’s” creator Matt Groening, film director Jim Jarmusch, the Talking Heads, British avant-funk band Melt yourself down (whose name comes from the title of one of Chance’s tunes), Deborah Harry and Chris Stein (of Blondie) to name a few.
“James gave me my “Big Time” start as a member of James White & The Blacks.This band also featured Joseph Bowie (whose own legendary Defunkt would emerge from his association with James) and Ornette Colman guitarist Bern Nix.” says Tomas Doncker.
