Now THAT is one hell of an intro. I loved it! So capturing. You had so much control of the track, and with funk that is absolutely important. I love the brass that was used. Is the brass VST, or actual playing? Because they sound very realisitc. If they are VST's, what are they called, my friend? This is one very funky piece of work, no doubt. You couldn't possibly receive my fav faster. So much creativity is involved, which inspires me for my current Funk/Jazz track I'm working on. I encourage you, and who all was involved to do more of this. Incredible live solos with the keys and the guitars. Much respect! Peace!

Thanks allot, GO. So glad you like it and took time to comment and fav it.

I agree...Funk is quite tight. The brass is my Kontakt VST and is one of my favorites. Brass can be tough to get right without sounding too midi.

I do have plans to do much more of this style. My page has a few more similar to this if you want to check it out.

Love when the trumpet comes in or whatever preset that was. Its a bit catchy, and it reminds me of other funk songs.

Hey Jklice,

Glad you like it and took time to comment.

Yeah, that's the brass instrument in the Kontakt VST.

Haha, what a fun track! It has it all, a little Seinfeld ,a lot of jazz and even a little Daft Punk sounding vocal work.

What a treat. Excellent work!
ScottB55 replied 5th Mar 2015 - 9 years ago
Hey RW,

Glad you like my track and took time to comment. Actually, I hadn't noticed the bass sounding like the Seinfeld theme, but you are right! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I'm not too familiar with Daft Punk, though.

This track came straight out of Funk Town, USA. Nice job. Cool vocal and funky bip bop hop beat.

Hey TG,

Really appreciate you checking in and leaving your kind words. So glad you like my track.

so refreshing to hear this feel! never heard that talk-box effect at the beginning. that is a new sound for me. very slick arrangement and mix. neat solos by different instruments and of course the skatting is classic. When the piano takes a turn at 2:08 it is a perfect moment. fun track!
ScottB55 replied 4th Mar 2015 - 9 years ago
Thanks allot, MS. I appreciate your comment.

The talk-box has been around awhile. Most people knew of the talk-box from Peter Frampton's album. I don't know if it's used much in today's music, since, other than jazz, I don't listen to too much new stuff.

This is simply brilliant!
Talkbox is a new colour on your desk...sometimes I had a big-band feeling...I showed to our drummer Lugo, who wanted to play in a big-band in his entire life but he failed this project :-)
He danced a bit with a sad smile on his face...:-)

Respect, Danke

Hi Danke,

And thank you for your kind words. Yes, I don't use the talk-box much, if at all. It was fun to give it a try, though.

I do love the big band sound. I played many years with different big bands in my career and loved every minute of it, so whenever I can fit a brass track in my songs, I do it.

Description : Updated 12/2/2022. This is an interesting redo of a funky and fun composition. I gave it more polish by switching to a different drum kit, swapped the flute solo for a synth, then infused more flavor into the guitars, bass and organ. Then lastly tweaking the final master. Can you tell the difference? Let me know. Enjoy.

A classic funk track from the 70's, featured in Cheech and Chong's "Up In Smoke".
