What was Jazz Funk? Was it some kind of musical phenomenon? Or a marketing ploy by the big labels to re-activate exsisting musical talent that had been (metaphorically) sitting on their arses for most of the 70s?... Hmmm, don't know is the honest answer?... What I do know is that said big record labels spent big money; Orchestras, brass sections, massive producers (Tommy Lipuma, Creed Taylor, Mizell Bros), and gave these magnificent musicians a fine platform to show their talents... Whatever... While Throbing Gristle juxtapose white middle class wine bar botherers with their seminal lp, '20 Jazz-Funk Greats' (confusing). Some of the best contemporary Jazz triumphed, brilliantly... This is the first of a poorly concieved... Can i be bothered, etc. Wonderful journey into... Jazz Funk... Enjoy...
