The Screaming Eagle of Soul, Charles Bradley, sadly passed away following a battle with cancer in late September. Now he's being honored in the city he called home for the past 20 years with a new mural. As Bowery Boogie reports, street artist Joe Miller painted the new tribute as part of The New Allen collective. You can visit it in person in NYC's Lower East Side at 122 Allen St, and see pictures in the gallery above.
This isn't the first work inspired by Charles Bradley that Joe Miller has done. Earlier in October, he contributed a painting of Bradley to Gallery Cafe Chicago's Free Throws series, which you can see below. Beyond NYC, Bradley was also recently honored with a mural in Asheville, NC, by artist Gus Cutty. See that below as well.
Charles Bradley, along with fellow late Daptone family member Sharon Jones, is featured in the new documentary/concert film Living on Soul. BrooklynVegan is presenting a screening of the film at Nitehawk Cinema on November 15 as part of the "Music Driven" series, followed by a Q&A with directors Cory Bailey and Jeff Broadway, Daptone co-founder Neal Sugarman, and an after-party in Nitehawk’s Low-Res bar featuring Daptone DJs and giveaways. It's sold out.
