Great downbeat! This retro funk is very cool, Al. This makes me consider the fine line between jazz-funk music. I do like some of the "uptown funk" stuff but this is like "roots funk" or in a similiar way that "Americana" is like folk-rock. Sounds great!

Get down with your bad self! Slaptastick, just funkin' great - you da man! big grin :D

I like the smooth guitar contrasting with the funkified elements but then that 1:14 section just turns the whole thing on its head - fantastic! Killer bass, energetic grooves, a perfect balance between nicely grounded and interstellar fonk.

Think some of the best jazz funk music came from the 80s and 90s this track reminds of me of D Sanbourne you've captured the mood and era perfectly love the horn arrangements, overall another brilliant track.

Really snappy funky tune! Bass has a killer sound and those drums provide a tight funky beat for an overall excellent assortment of keyboard and fx additions throughout! I thought I heard a little Farfisa organ going on in there too. Really nice listen, quite a toe tapper!

Captivating funkiness! Awesome production (listening on headphones to grab every detail!). That bass has got me wanting to hop around, love the brass and the vocal interjections - the arrangement is superb! Uplifting, fun and expertly created.

Now this is MASTERFUL!! The Professor teaching the class. Farfisa organ, cool! Doesn't matter what the instrument is a great musician will make good music with it, or great music in the case. Great bass, guitar, horns, synth, sampling et al, a true tour-da-force! Your guitar work is very good Al! Is this a backer track? God help any one who tries it on if it is. Bravo!

Yes, what a slap bass man.... funky funky, retro sound...! smile :)

A Farfisa? Where in the world you found this?? wink ;) I remember the Farfisa that the keyboard player used in our band once ago (in the mid-end 70´s) he played this instead of an Hammond (too expensive indeed).

As always pristine arrangement and cool rythm, well positioned horn sections and the hip-hop vocals-fx fits very good in the context! Gratulate to an explosiv-funky-cascade-tune Al!! smile :) smile :)

I'm always drawn in by a great sax sound and the power of brass. Very expressive sax playing - it really sings to us! Fascinating arrangement, I really like the changes in intensity and the use of brass. The energy and dynamics definitely carry us along and keep us hooked. Stunningly good!
