The personal possessions of the soul singer James Brown, the self-proclaimed “Godfather of Soul," will be auctioned

On Thursday as scheduled after an appeals court judge declined on Monday to block the sale. Christie's, the New York auction house, will offer nearly 350 items, including hair curlers, several performance outfits and a green vinyl sofa, in a sale expected to fetch up to $2 million.

Judge Jasper M. Cureton of South Carolina appeals court said, however, that the South Carolina attorney general could continue his inquiry into a feud between heirs and business administrators over the estate.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
