Re: Can anyone recommend me some funk music?
Funk is the primary musical context that I perform in. James Brown is the foundation of funk - the stuff I've studied the most. Check out Clyde Stubblefield and Jabo Starks. The other greats like Mike Clark, Zigaboo Modeliste, David Garibaldi, and Steve Gadd are also great to study. The list goes on.
I also really dig the contemporary funk guys - I love Stanton Moore, Steve Jordan, and ?uestlove. Listen to all that stuff.
Oh! Trombone Shorty is some great modern funk too.
