Tower of Power, the R&B-based, horn section band from Oakland, California, are celebrating their 50-year career. During this podcast episode we talk with founding member Emilio Castillo — tenor and alto saxophones, plus backing and occasional lead vocals — about the band’s new album, Soul Side of Town, and the new vocalist Marcus Scott. Other subjects are the psychedelic movement of the late ‘60s and Castillo’s experience with the legendary promoter Bill Graham.
