I was having a whole funk moment this week and went thought a good run of songs from all over the world. In the end I picked this song to review although there were two Ghost Funk Orchestra tracks that were in contention right up until a few seconds ago. All of it is such good music.
I think I picked this one because it has such a classic sound. There are many iterations and different takes on funk these days and I do enjoy them. Sometimes though, these classic sounds are just what I need…there is some Tower of Power running through this song in just the right way.
This track kicks right from the very beginning with a solid drum beat (with bongos:) and a soulful guitar leading into the horns. I read on this band’s website that they do have the brass section with them at live shows which would be great to see…someday I have to get to Philly to check it out. There is also a nice, punchy bass that sets a good vibe throughout and the whole jam just keeps you bopping along. And check out the jumpy piano solo that starts around the 2:30 mark…outstanding!
