James “JT” Taylor was the lead singer for the funk, R&B band Kool and the Gang.  I figured Elvis will rule this day, with good reason but I thought I’d give you a little Funk, and wish JT a Happy Birthday because yes he was born on this day August 16, 1953  Their early stuff was really good, a little bit more jazzy than pop but that was stuff most people never heard and it was before JT so enjoy this tune.
