These 14 Funky Grooves cover a span of a number of years and were always an escapism from songwriting for Gavin.
Growing up, playing horn in a Soul/Funk band surrounded by amazing musicians and learning the ropes was as awe inspiring as being introduced to early funk on deleted vinyl and tape by the more mature members of the band!!!!,and new friends along the way.
This is the result.
You can hear some of this material on the Amazing "A Funk Above The Rest" WWW.KUVO.ORG (Jazz 89) Saturday night 11-1am Radio Show hosted by Skip Reeves, as a copy is being worn out by the Funktologist himself! -Tracks are being played from Saturday 7th April, so go get yo Chocolate Chunk o' Funk On!
This CD is now also avilable through Skip's own website:
www.afunkabovetherest.com for further distribution, at the same price as cdbaby.
More airplay has been confirmed by the PRINCE endorsed radio show "The Upper Room" With host Joe Kelly ( http://www.upperroomwithjoekelley.com/listen.htm )
and in the process of consideration for many others.
