Playing tracks by
Deodato, Lou Donaldson, Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones, Donald Byrd, George Benson and more.
SoulSistas And SoulBruthas! This mix is partly inspired by the accompanying graffiti picture taken in Switzerland. It's got some of the influences on the early 90's Acid Jazz scene like "Boogaloo Joe" Jones, a superbly talented guitar player, as well as the MASSIVE organ of Richard "Groove" Holmes. Some greasy funk from Deodato. The Ohio Players with a rare instrumental. A few swingin' tunes are dip in by Donald Byrd, with a take on the classic "Boom Boom," as well as the great Les McCann taking you down that "Green, Green, Rocky Road." It's a real mix up, but all the tunes have those get-down-groovy elements that are indeed FONKY! My hope is that you feel the same. One hour of straight GROOVES!
This one goes out to http://www.mixcloud.com/orsii, a constant inspiration!
Peace and SOUL,
"See The Girl With The Red Dress On, She Can Birdland ALL NIGHT LONG!"
