“James Brown Stubb's, May 10 At age 73, James Brown is still the star of the James Brown show. Veneration-minded fans would forgive the Godfather if he just came out and waved, ceding all the heavy lifting to his teeming ensemble of musicians, backup singers, and dancers. Yet even as he took a frequent back seat to solos, one never got the impression he wasn't involved in Wednesday night's shoulder-to-shoulder performance. The spectacle began with an extended vamp that gave way to white-tux-clad emcee Danny Ray orating a variation of the legendary Apollo Theatre "Star Time" introduction. Brown then strode onstage to the strains of "Make It Funky" and "Get up Offa That Thing," the latter accentuated by a soaring Leroy Harper sax solo.”
