Jimmy Castor, Funk Legend, Band Leader, and Saxophonist passed away Tuesday in Henderson, NV, of heart failure at age 71. Castor was born in Manhattan in 1940 and grew up in Harlem and Washington Heights playing with rock n' roll singer Frankie Lymon. He branched out on his own and took his mastery of R&B, doo woo, Latin soul, and Funk with him.

Castor released some 16 albums. His most known hits are "Troglodyte (Cave Man)" and "Bertha Butt Boogie". His funky hit “It’s Just Begun”, has been sampled numerous times over the years by hip-hop artists such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and Mos Def. It was also used in the movie "Flashdance" during the break-dance scene.
