Level 42

80s to 90s jazz/funk turned pop band. Starting in the early 80s predominantly jazz/funk (check out their self titled album, 'The Early Tapes' - and live album 'A Physical Presence'). Come 1985 the band decided to take a more commercial route releasing 'World Machine' (1985) and 'Running in the Family' (1987). Known for hits such as 'Something About You', 'Lessons in Love' and 'Running In The Family'.

Fronted by bassist Mark King, known for his legendary slap technique. Recommended listening for bass players 'Mr Pink' '88' 'Foundation and Empire' 'The Chinese Way'. While studio versions of these songs are fairly good, the band excel in a live environment. Live versions of these can all be found on the excellent 'A Physical Presence' album.
