major rip off JB, the singer even starts by saying "there was a time", nevertheless killer tune! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MFP4XO/ref=dm_dp_trk3

 

I'm getting the album, hopefully it'll all sound like this darthsmile.gif

Quazar.

 

A P-funk spin off from '78. Sadly they record only one album and the producer/bandleader/singer Glen Goins passed away before the LP was released.

Trouble Funk out of DC.  Back in the day, funk and go-go began and ended with these guys.  Older still, an honorable mention to The Meters.

Funny you mention JB, "In The Jungle Groove" and "Say It Loud" albums were delivering an oh so funky groove in my office.  The Godfather indeed.

his band if just unbelievably tight on this set! the late 60's were really astounding for JB, he clearly didn't become #1 by a matter of chance.

the guitar player and drummer on "give it up or turn it loose" are beyond words! and I've watched so many videos of him on youtube from this golden era that it's like being there when listening to this fantastic sounding setpopcorn.gif

when working out, it doesn't really get better than this playlist:

this funky version of "listen here" is too good!

What a great thread and I hope this bump can bring it back to life... Here's my contribution, the percussion in this is crazy and it's from a great album.

Here we have some instrumental funk. 

 

This is some really cool progressive stuff:

Groovy as funk can be:

This is actually from a Game named Gitaroo Man. But thats one sick groove:

And you know what, funk in games seems always to be legit:

Sadly, Donald Byrd recently passed away. 

Earlier Jazz: "Ghana" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J3BAmN01AQ

Jazz Funk Fusion: "Falling like Dominoes" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16_RNvYWogs 

As a producer of the Blackbyrds: "Rock Creek Park" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkXh4kRTBVk

oh no! I never knew about this... R.I.P Mr. Byrd 

 

I've only got one album by him - Black Byrd but I love it, a prefect blend of funk and jazz. Thanks for posting those songs though, the third one is amazing! I don't think I've ever heard it out of being sampled in hip hop before. The second one was also very enjoyable, I see I need to get me some more of his stuff then!

 

Here's a jazz hip hop collaboration in 1992 with Byrd playing the sax so beautifully on this smooth track. The rapper, who also sadly died in 2011 is one half of Gangstarr which where one of the first to make Jazz sampling popular in hip hop. Two legends now gone frown.gif

Wow the 1 on the last one you posted hits really hard, damn! beyersmile.png Intense bass, dig the rest of the track too, thanks for sharing. I thought 'what? funk in game soundtracks?' But that reminds me of an xbox game I used to own with funky rapping aliens from a planet called funkatron who, well I don't really remember but they had some funky music. Here's a track from their 1993 game on the Sega Mega Drive

 

 

I think that 16-bit type game sound makes it even funkier and gives it an interesting sound.

Bob James, the god of dark sounding funky jazz at work! Too good to be true on vintage orthos off a good rig:

 

post #419 of 431

A Bob James and Vintage Ortho combo works for me.

I really like Westchester Lady.

…are we missing a letter? That seems more "humpasorous" than "thumpasorous"…L3000.gif
