Characteristic features of Funk are jumping bass lines, resilient beat and rhythmic nesting of short melodic phrases. Funk is synonymous in black music with a 50s jazz connection from Hardbop with blues and gospel elements. The 60s produced a tense with choppy tune and dance-driven soul. Since the 70s, there has been an extension of the style, more instruments were used. In any case, the funk is defined by its rhythmic scheme and being funky was considered a compliment.
