Funk, Inc.

1972
Prestige

The excellent second album from Funk Inc. is partway between the JBs and Kool and The Gang but with way more jazz licks. Jams like The Better Half or the title track churn and move, their interlocking parts interacting with other elements, meshing together in a functioning, oily machine. They put on a great Funkadelic impression on the low tempo, simmering hippie blues funk of They Trying To Get Me and the soul track Let’s Make Peace and Stop The War is a smooth palette cleanser before. the final soul-jazz skills-showcase of Jung Bungo. Perhaps their best outing, fully realised funk jazz of the highest quality.
