Album Notes
Award winning film & TV composer Chris Anderson has had successes in every arena of his composing career. His 30+ film scores range from full orchestral scores to roots & swing to avant jazz and pop. Equally at home with an orchestra, a funk band or a Javanese Gamelan, Anderson is a proven musical chameleon.

TRIPPIN' THE ASS FANTASTIC brings Anderson's writing and arranging skills to full bore in the funk/jazz arena. Meticulously crafted, Anderson plays Ringmaster to a carnival of musicians, including Tower of Power veteran horn players Lee Thornburg and Dave 'Woody' Woodford, as well as Wallflowers Dobro & Lap Steel player Ben Peeler. Dobro & Lap Steel may seem unlikely instruments on a funk record, but this is no ordinary funk record- this is WHITEY'S CARNIVAL OF FUNK.

Jana Pendragon of Music Conection says 'Anderson displays the sort of musical substance you'd likley find in Basie, Goodman, Ellington or Wills'

The Mad Bomber

70's jazz/funk anyone?
Whitey's Carnival sounds like someone sat down to define what 70s' Jazz/funk was all about, then hunted down the musicians who could play it. If the Tower of Power were to record an instrumental album, this would probably be it. Not that it IS an instrumental album, but the vocals are just there to drive the whole thing on, which they do in fine style, by the way.

No fat, no fillers, just funk.
