FUNK

15 posts in this topic

Parliament, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, are the space age psychadelic funk, jamming grooves. James Brown (the major root of funk) is like dance your ass off funk.

So I guess, do you mean old school like 60's or 70's?

Flashlight!

Just popped in my head. Parliament track.

Your Miles posting reminded me of Fela and the Afro Beat Funk.
