YouTube : The Majestics, aka The Majestics Two Toned Funk Company, were a high school band (average age 18) from Longview, Texas. They recorded their solitary 45 for their managers label and split up not long after when their equipment was rustled on the way to Houston and the Viet Nam draft board came knocking.

The Greyboy Allstars : The Greyboy Allstars first formed almost 15 years ago to realize the vision of rare groove luminary DJ Greyboy: an original sound reminiscent of ..70s soundtrack music. What Happened to Television? (April 17, 2007/SCI Fidelity), the group’s first studio album in nearly a decade, finds them reunited with Greyboy for the first time since their seminal 1995 breakthrough, West Coast Boogaloo. : Senor Soul recorded some fair soul music, usually though not always instrumental, in 1967-70 with Latin and funk tinges. That’s the kind of music that War took to the top of the charts in the 1970s, and the similarities between the two bands aren’t a coincidence.

destination: OUT : The first time I saw Ornette Coleman, he was fronting his harmolodic funk ensemble Prime Time, a group savvier jazz friends warned me was a total â??sell out.â? It was 1990 and Ornette had moved far beyond his original acoustic quartet.

Maceo Parker : Everyone knows by now that he’s played with each and every leader of funk, his start with James Brown, which Maceo describes as ” like being at University “; jumping aboard the Mothership with George Clinton; stretching out with Bootsy’s Rubber Band.

Tower Of Power : Tower’s 40 year odyssey actually began in 1968 when Emilio Castillo met Stephen “Doc” Kupka in July of that year. When Doc auditioned during a band rehearsal at Emilio’s house, Emilio’s father called him into the kitchen and offered the following advice: “Hire that guy, he’s got something.” Doc and his signature baritone sax sound were now in the band, and on August 13, 1968, Tower of Power, as we know them today, began playing gigs, and soon became very well known in the area.

Modélisation des savoirs : According to Lubat, the jazz-funk played by the Head Hunters differs from other electric jazz music from the seventies called jazz-rock. It is not based on the same binary rhythmic feeling, but on what he calls a “trinary” one (using a word combining binary and ternary). This means that the straight-sixteenth rhythmic orientation of Hancock at that time is not as straight as in other jazz-rock groups such as Mahavishnu Orchestra or Return to Forever.

Soulwalking : Formed in Brooklyn, New York in 1968. In 1975, their debut album changed the face of dance music and is still a huge influence some 30 years on. With their tight horn section and brief, chanted vocals, the group’s first release, ‘Movin’, topped the R & B charts and was a pop Top 20 hit.
