Description

Soul-jazz in the early-70s was attuned to the dance rhythms of more commercial black music, yet still made room for the deep blues grooves and extended blowing that were hallmarks of the style in earlier years. Funk Inc., the hot instrumental quintet from Indianapolis, was indicative of the era's best, displaying traces of Sly Stone and Marvin Gaye, yet still able to stretch out and play unhyphenated jazz with subtlety and imagination. The extended grooves struck on the band's eponymous 1971 Prestige debut creating a winning forum for the talents of organist/leader Bobby Watley, tenor saxophonist Eugene Barr, and blues-drenched guitarist Steve Weakley. Unvarnished, raw, and unabashedly funky, Funk Inc. is a relentlessly infectious record chock full of charm. Back in print on vinyl for the first time in over 20 years, this definitive 180g LP pressing was mastered from the original master tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and comes housed in a one-pocket old-school style tip-on jacket.
