And to break away from the norm when we think of funk. A jazz genius did an album with as great of great funk groove as any...
Herbie Hancock - "Headhunters". Harvey Mason takes a back seat to no one...
Herbie Hancock isn't just a jazz genius, he's a musical genius. You can't limit that guy to one simple genre of jazz, if you want to call it that.
You guys are listing all the cliche funk bands, but funk has sort of become diluted as it's started to mix with other genres. If you want I can list a bunch of funk fusion, if you wanna call them that, bands. Just ask.
