Luciano Pavarotti & James Brown perform
“It’s a Man’s World”
It must have been the most unlikely duo of all time. Luciano Pavarotti, crowned “King of the High Cs”, and the raspy funk-infused blues-chantings of the irrepressible “Godfather of Soul” James Brown.
Yet no other collaboration has so captured the aesthetic of perfection in incongruity as this electrifying duet performed with James Brown in Pavarotti’s hometown of Modena, Italy in the spring of 2002 in the video below. This is magic and an incredible fusion of synergies.
