American bassist, born 1931, died 17 August 2004.
When [a=James Brown] gained enough succes (and money) to hire a regular band at the end of 1958, Bernard Odum, that was already in the musical business, became bassist of his group.
Even if he was sometimes replaced by [a=Hubert Perry], [a='Sweet' Charles Sherrell] or others, Bernard worked in the James Brown band until the end of the 60's and was fired (with all other musicians) when James decided to create a new young group, [a=J.B.'s, The], in the end of 1969.
Bernard then briefly joined [a=Maceo Parker] in All the King's Men group in 1970.
