Soul With a Capital 'S': Tower of Power

Tenorsaxofonist Emillio Castillo is al vanaf 1967 de onbetwiste leider van de immens populaire live-act Tower of Power. Aanvankelijk noemde hij zijn band The Motowns, maar met de komst van baritonsaxofonist Stephen 'Doc' Kupka werd de groepsnaam gewijzigd in Tower of Power.

Aan het begin van de jaren zeventig leverden de twee albums die zij opnamen voor Warner, Bump City en Tower of Power, evenzoveel hitsingles op.
Hoewel er frequent werd gewisseld van vocalisten en ritmesecties, bleef de blazerssectie van Tower of Power wonderwel in tact.
In de loop der jaren maakten vele groten uit de internationale muziekwereld gebruik van de diensten van Tower of Power als begeleidingsband. Elton John, Santana, Bonnie Raitt en Toto zijn maar een paar van de tientallen acts die de voorkeur gaven aan de dynamiek van deze uiterst soepel swingende funkmachine. Het is wonderbaarlijk dat Tower of Power na een bestaan van veertig jaar nog steeds met groot succes de wereld rondtrekt...
