Whilst this may be cheating,

David Holmes

Not his studio work, his essential mixes. In particular the one broadcast on Radio 1 in the UK on 97/98 new years eve. Stuffed full of good funk and soul.

Can be DL'd from www.freshlymixed.com along with just about any other essential mix.

Apparently he used a load of bootlegs during this mix - I'd advise people to NOT support bootlegging, the people that buy bootlegs and DJs that use them.

Next time it could be YOUR royalties that are not being paid.

In the case of downloading these mixes it is an ethical issue rather than a legal one.

I was wondering if anyone has any good recomandations for blues artists/albums. I'm just starting to get into to it with a few artists (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robin Trower, B.B. King) and so far I really like it and I'd like to experiment with more artists.

Albert King is (in my opinion) the greatest blues artist and I highly recommend him to anyone. Also check out John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters and Albert Collins.

Zappa and JohnFoo... nice lists! Here's a few I like:

Scofield Band - Pick Hits Live
Any James Brown - Doesn't get funkier than "I've got the feeling"
Brecker Brothers Live or Heavy Metal Bebop
Tony Williams Lifetime
CAB - w/ Dennis Chambers
Dave Weckl - Transition
Maceo Parker - Funk Overload
Pat Martino - Stone Blue and First Light
Jonas Hellborg - Temporal Analogues of Paradise

I'll kick myself later for leaving some off...

Its so funky i can smell it

[b]The Red Hot Chili Peppers have a lot of Funk to them sure they aren't really considered funk. But listen to funky monks and tell me thats not funk. John Frusciante can play some mean funk. PERIOD!

I'll let you guys know how I like the album "Cry-Tender" by Lateef when I finally get it.
I would also strongly suggest the albums "Eastern Sounds" and "Live At Pep's" by Lateef. I got these ones recently.

Anything Victor Bailey has laid a line down for has been funky. Check out Weather Report's Procession CD or Victor Bailey's Low Blow CD to see him in action. Stanley Clarke's School Days album has a lot of funk to it, very fun songs. Alain Caron's Play and his Rhythm'n Jazz both have their fair share of funky bass lines, on Rhythm'n Jazz check out "Slam The Clown" for a sample. That should be a starter. If you want real funk with good bass in it, then check out some of the suggested funk bands listed.
