What is the soul(/funk) song that begins with the horn section playing "Frere Jacques" ("Are You Sleeping")?

They play the melody straight once, then it modulates into a minor or a different mode or something. It's not used in the rest of the song. The singer sounds vaguely James Brown-esque, though I am pretty sure it's not him. Unfortunately I didn't catch any lyrics to Google. It's not mentioned here
