5.0 out of 5 stars
70s funk jazz at its best, 11 April 2010
This CD release contains the first and the second album of Funk Inc., the 1969 found, Indianapolis based funk jazz band which brought an easy, jazzy style to black "funky" music of that time. While today only few people would listen to 70's funk style this band and even more these two albums are still extremely listenable, more precisely, they are real big fun to listen to. Today's classification would easily categorize it as jazz lounge or acid jazz (because of the groovy hammond B3 sound to be heard here) but it's not that boring species of endlessly repeated sampled sound shreds with a superficial electronic two-step rhythm. It's absolutely spirited, vivid music moving your body and carrying you away when you were supposed to hang out on that boring after-work party doing small talk...
Buy it as long as it is available and have a look for some other black rhythm gems of that time like Idris Muhammad's 70's releases, too.
