So, funk pioneers Parliament released a new album last month, seemingly out of nowhere. This thing is massive, clocking in at over one hour and 40 minutes long. Given the bulk of it, it's not all going to be fantastic but there's certainly some choice cuts here that prove George Clinton deserves the recognition he gets. The band of musicians he's pulled together for this album (particularly the fresh caliber of horn players he's recruited) are tight, and act as a breath of fresh air to an ensemble in danger of sounding out-of-date and stale. I will say that the album is far too bloated for its own good, but it's a fun listen no doubt.

This modern synth funk groove sounds like it was recorded in 1983 or 1984.

 

 

Fingazz plays the talk box inspired by Roger Troutman (RIP) , founder of the funk band ZAPP. Get It Up is a track by The Time which was composed and written by The Purple Man (Rest in Purple)

Sorry for more Parliament/George Clinton.

 

A commercial with Snoop Dog keeps popping on TV...and I wonder...I bet...people think that is a Snoop song.

I hear ya, Trip. The good thing about Snoop, and west coast G-Funk is that it kind of carried the funk-torch in the 90's when Funk pretty much died out. It exposed many people to funk. Bootsy even gave it his blessing. In fact, he kind of "predicts" G-funk. He says it here at 4.57

Amazing interview. I love it. I had never heard anything about the Incorporated Thang Band. Body Jackin' is hot like fire! I will definitely keep a listening ear and booth eyes open the next time I go record digging.

 

Kenneth Sumter aka Sumy (from 'Surinam Baby', a nickname given to him by his friends) was born August 24, 1957 in Paramaribo, Surinam. Initially playing on self made instruments as a hobby, Sumy started his music career in 1979 with buying real instruments (a Hammond organ, a Rhodes piano and a PPG synthesizer), writing, recording and releasing his first single 'Going Insane' on his own Sumy Records label and performing with his band 'The Freaky Thangs'. The early 80's saw Sumy signing a license deal with Philips for two singles, 'The Funky "G" (Only Comes At Night)' (1981) and 'Funkin' In Your Mind' (1982), recording and releasing an LP, 'Tryin' To Survive' in 1983 and founding his own record label 'Galaxy Records'. From 1986, he goes by the name 'Krisnallah', still making music and performing live. He can be found on social media by the name of Krisnallah Sumy. His music is for the mind. Tasty soul with milk.

Douglas is a former Jazz guitarist and composer who also worked on Sumy's 1983 solo LP.

Has anyone listened to Flying Lotus' latest album? There's a track there with George Clinton. I don't know, I feel it's kind of haunting yet it's got that funk. Like doom-funk or something. It's a good listen, I love it. 

 

 

 

Think this really inspired Alright by Jamiroquoi. This is amazing.

'One of Those Funky Things' is my favorite;

 

 

Of course, how about some Minneapolis funk from Prince;

Parliament - Night Of The Thumpasorus People (1975) from their fourth studio album Mothership Connection

The only thing we care about is the funk, the whole funk and nothing but the funk!

North Carolina Funk

 

 

This one's not from Minneapolis but it kinda reminded me of the purple man as did The Time when I first heard their track Get It Up.

Actually, The Time really was Prince, with Morris on lead vocals.

 

My favorite jam from The Whispers....produced by the great Leon Sylvers III (SOLAR Records).

The Stones got funky with this track;

 

 

 

If Rockstar ever decides to set a GTA game in the 70s, all they have to do is check out this thread for funk jams. It would be a SERIOUS radio station. 

 

Prince & George Clinton - "We Can Funk"

"I'm tested positive for the funk!"
