Furthermore; as I seem to keep forgetting what more I want to say....

Any song/album from the Arista Era of The Grateful Dead has a great funk twist and a very respectable sound that any funk lover can enjoy

[b] jaco pastorius

a wise word would be to get his self titled album or punk jazz his double disc cd. Unfortunately he was killed outside a club in the late eighties by a bouncer who knocked **** out of him but anyway check out others by the weather report he was in that aswell

Can anyone with soulseek and lots of Jazz give me their names and some albums to download? I'm a big ska fan so I love the sound of brass, and I just listened to all the samples on Miles Davis' Kind of Blue and they're great. Anything similar to him and just good beginning jazz recommendations would be awesome.

Hmmm nevermind I just read introduction to jazz, but still if anyone has soulseek please tell me your name

Can anyone recommend me some good funk tunes to learn on guitar. I've nailed Azwethinkweiz, Deep Inside and Hilikus by Incubus. Sink beneath the line is hard, can anyone recommend anything similar? By the way, does anyone know where influences for songs like Azwethinkweiz came from?

Favorite funk band

My favorite funk band is actually a local group from where I go to college. They're called the Organ Donors. They're a keyboard (hence "Organ Donors") dominated group that combines slappin' bass, funky drum grooves, screamin' electric guitar, and turntables with the keyboards.
you guys should check 'em out at

my favorites

i thought i'd post some lesser known (but amazing!!) albums here

fly - fly
a sick chordless jazz trio...mark turner on alto, larry grenadier on bass, and jeff ballard on drums. this is really exploratory jazz, sometimes with a funky/worldbeat feel. "fly mr. freakjar" is goood.

scott amendola band - cry
this is one of my favorite albums, full of jazz, folk, avante-garde, african, fusion, funk, influences. scott is also one of my favorite drummers-he's played with charlie hunter along with countless others. check out the track "a cry for john brown" or, the very relevant bob dylan cover, "masters of war." BUY THIS ALBUM!!!

john coltrane - crescent
i only recently got this album, and it's already one of my favorite coltrane recordings. it was recorded the same year as a love supreme, but it's so different in character. just as spiritual, crescent is more somber and introspective in nature. the record is amazing played all the way through.

paul motian trio - trioism
paul motian-drums, joe lovano-tenor, bill frisell-guitar. the interplay between musicians is outrageous. "it should've happened a long time ago" is such a druggy song, with a beautiful melody.

t. j. kirk - if four was one
this uber funky band only covers thelonious monk, james brown, and roland kirk tunes...hence their name. scott amendola (above) is on this album, and lays down incredibly funky grooves, along with charlie hunter, who plays an 8 string guitar (he plays guitar and bass lines at the same time, there is no other bass player in the band). the other two guitarists, john schott and will bernard are also amazing. good stuff!


other albums i really like:
cuong vu - bound (trumpeter played with pat metheny-completely unique sound)
tin hat trio - rodeo eroded (chamber/jazz/folk/avante trio...willie nelson's on one track!)
will bernard - motherbug (so funky!)
nels cline singers - instumentals (nels cline is a guitar god! this album is so ridiculous)
medeski martin and wood - anything (i love these guys)

most of these albums can be previewed at the itunes music store, so you can hear clips of them for free...some of them are also on emusic.com....check them out

peace!

I have to agree, The BPB plays some of the hardest charts, and I would know, i've played 5 of the songs mentioned above on lead trumpet and they are hard. Also, for those of you looking for a jazzier type of funk, look to Tower of Power.
I recommend getting:
Oakland Stroke
Soul with a Capital "S"

They are a very talented band and have an amazing horn section.

my influences in funk and jazz go a long way. mainly in funk i stick to the older stuff like the red hot chili peppers who are rock/funk, bootsy collins the god of space bass, parliment funkadelic with george cliton, earth wind and fire, tower of power, defunkt... in jazz i listen to jaco pastorius from weather report and word of mouth, stanley clark, micheal manring... there are many great bass players you just have to find them

Billy Cobham - try some stuff
Dave Weckl - all the songs (the ones with his band)
Maceo & The Macks - "Soul Power 74" and others
War - had some good stuff too
Ray Charles - buy his new duets album ("Fever" is a great song)
Dave Brubeck - "Take Five" and many others

I've really gotten into funk lately, and I was hoping to list some artists but everyone beat me to them. My radio station on launch has shown me some cool funk artists, and I think because I gain nothing for it it'll be cool to put the address on here.

http://launch.yahoo.com/lc/?rt=0&rp1=0&rp2=1568046890

My station has other music I like on it, but there is one mood which is Funk and old motown stuff only.
