From Questlove: Back in 2017, Questlove Supreme (QLS) sat down with James Mtume for a special two-part conversation about life, music, and everything in between.

James, who remained a friend of the show, passed in early 2022. As we celebrate Black Music Month by highlighting an episode per day, this one is especially important. It’s a look back at a legend, a visionary, and a friend.

PART 1: In part 1 of 2, legendary musician and song writer James Mtume reminisces about his historical relationships with legendary jazz musicians like Miles Davis, walks team supreme through the songwriting process and explains the origins of "Mtume."
