Re: Can anyone recommend me some funk music?
James Brown's greatest band (IMO) were the J.B.'s - pretty much an all star band as far as I'm concerned led by Fred Wesley, with Maceo Parker, Clyde, Jabo, the Collins bros (Bootsy & Catfish)... When these guys left James Brown, most of them started a little known band called Parliament. There's an anthology called Funky Good Times which is well worth the money spent.
Another GREAT band that's important to check out is Rufus, which featured a young John Robinson and the amazing Chaka Kahn. Masterjam is my favorite album that they did.
