ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Funk legends Mike Clark and Paul Jackson are back in the mix like 1976, adding their signature Headhunter's grooves. Reggie Watts (2003 Seattle Weekly Artist of the Year) steps up to vocal duty on the opening title track. Reggie has been compared to both Marvin Gaye and Al Green, so be prepared for a forecast of funk and soul when he lets it rain. Sounding like vintage Average White Band, Alex Veley joins in on vocals for "The Lifestyle".

Dynamic fender rhodes playing from Seattle area piano men Alex Veley and Darius Wilrich sparkle throughout the album. Sax prodigy The Gould Effect adds layers of Afro-Beat inspired horn lines. Toad the Wet Sprocket alum, Randy Guss, busts some sly beats while experimental trumpeter Jim Knodle blows musical butterflies into the air.

"Juicy jams for toasty weather. Hot dogs ridin' baked beats. Settle into your summer with this laid-back collection of slinky grooves." - LL, Amoeba buyer

Smoking! Mike Clark and Paul Jackson sound incredible rocking it over these "Headhunter" style grooves. The vocalists are absolutely top knotch, Reggie Watts from Soulive and Alex Veley from Maktub. That's like Marvin Gaye singing with Al Green, these are two modern soul giants. I'm not familiar with all the players work, but Darius Wilrich burns on the electric piano and the trumpet player, Jim Knodle, sounds like Miles. A tight purchase for anyone interested in progressive hip-hop, soul, fusion, rock, or funk.
Like going to a music school for the hip.

grandilofunk project in 3 parts
The third volume of the trilogy. Mike Clark and Paul Jackson (rhythm section of Headhunters ) are back among the guests of luxury. Reggie Watts , singer of the group Maktub funk-rock'n'roll comes to lend its contest to the vocal ones. With final, one would have largely preferred an orientation plus "Sextant", even straightforwardly "Sun Ra & hi intergalactic Space Arkestra" with this grandilofunk project in 3 parts, but one will be satisfied despite everything with the good roots spirit (in Bullfrog, the group of funk of Kid Koala) present all along the 3 discs.
