Description : This is another Jazz/Funk composition. My brother on the Loop, BaoBou was kind enough to grace this track with his fire on guitar. Also, as a result of his contribution, I got inspired and added even more funk into the mix. Enjoy.

    Now that is damn funky! I smiled along the whole tune. Groovy, sweaty addictive - just pure old school raw funk with the extra mojo. Damn good job!

    Thanks a lot for incorporating my noodling! I love that by shifting the whole thing one beat it became even more funky.
    The whole thing is a masterpiece as usual. The horns here are off the chart btw.
    Love it and thanks for letting me be a part of it!

    BaoBou!!!!! Really? HAHA, gimme a truckload of those "NOODLES" anytime my friend! Your contribution here set this one just right. You caught that beat shift move, huh? Yep, on the beat or off the beat I don't care, just as long as it's funkier! I did the same with the bass too, BTW. Peace.

    Hey Mark, hope every thing is going well for you. Just want to say, I agree with you on bringer's reply on this one. With out textures there is no element of surprise in a song. I consider song form and textures one in the same. I try to keep my distance between predictable moves in Jazz productions, and who's going to listen to a track that they know what's going to happen from minute to minute. The door to perfection is eternally open to musicians, which is why we are able to endlessly create. You proved this on this track. PEACE. T576 OUT.

    I'm liking the 8 bit foley. Nice guitar solo (and keys later), very fitting. It does feel a bit sparse at times (in the first 2 or 3 min), like you are not finished, but you gotta be careful, the cost of perfection is infinite.

    I think BaoBou was my first collaborator...

    Faved, keep it up.

    Reply by kingmt77

    bringer, thanks for stopping by and sharing your observations and fave. BaoBou's solo was the missing link, and it's good you enjoyed his work. Now, what you call "sparse" I call "texture". Every textured moment was intentional and the setup for the next soloist. We have to remember that "less is more" is a strategy, especially in funk. My belief is that we are never really finished at this phase of what we are doing musically. Our ability to hear and express what we do musically should increase daily and only over time we get closer to perfection. Why? We all have our own definition of what true perfection is really all about. TTYL

    Hey Mark! Just back from a long trip, so please excuse my recent absence. Knew I needed to swing by and see what you've been up to. As always, the funky man with the funky music had something new.

    Most folks have been remarking on the composition so I'll just mention that the mix is absolutely pristine! As always, every little element is SO well balanced with every other. The drums are especially punchy and forward while never being overwhelming. Oh and I just lived for that slippy/slidey synth solo around 4:20.

    Hope all is well with you and yours!

    Well, what can I say about that? I think everything has been said! All thumbs up! Great piece. I feel like I've been transported back to the 80s in an old jazz and blues basement by Phladelphia. Someone has already written here. James Brown would be delighted. Nice funky sounding instruments. Great !!!!!!!! Greetings Manuela

    Mr. James Brown would definitely APPROVE!!! I hate to say it, but it's true...many folks on this platform (and others) totally miss the mark when it comes to FUNK music. They don't understand the language. From the very beginning your intro sets the stage...the horns are so in the pocket. Then the funky guitar and baseline come together and it is magic. As if all that wasn't enough, you throw in jazz influenced keys. The percussion is sitting right where it should be... I hate that horns are not as predominant in music as they were in the 70's. It is so refreshing it hear a horn section arrangement done as flawlessly as you have here. The synth is Currrrazzzy. There is nothing NOT to like with this polished version. Well done, you!!!!

    LovePeace&Light,

    Mykael, first off its been a minute and its good you stopped through. Your critique hit pretty much everything I was attempting to say. James Browns music has permanently effected me. PERMANENTLY! From his arranging chops to mastering that On The 1 groove and everything in between. Im with you on horn arrangements. Theres nothing like that sound . Im happy this hit right. Thanks for sharing everything you enjoyed here. Be safe and stay cool.

    Goodmorning Mark.
    I just wake up and the first thing that i do is get my coffee and most of the times listen to music.
    This morning it is your track.
    A nice funky wake up and that intro is so cool.
    That high guitar sound ohh my god !!
    then the piano and sax and everything so smooth into eachother.
    I dont know how you do it but you are the king of jazz thats for sure.

    Hey RitaJustBouncyRita! So if Im hearing you correctly, this was a Top of the morning caffeine hit FUNK. Im glad you got your day kicked off just right with this one. I concentrated on creativity by jacking that nostalgic JB swag. That section you mentioned with the Rhodes and sax I swapped with The Jimi Hendrix flavored solo, so we could chill after that outrageous synth solo. The feedback and compliments are extremely valuable. The fave is received graciously. As always, be safe and have an peaceful and enjoyable weekend my friend.

    love that muffled intro then the breakthrough, it reminds me of the intro to an Avalanches track 'since i left you' that Ian put me on to, although its totally different genre, and the intro is longer also but similar start

    Lovely warm organic sound and the funkiest thing I can ever remember hearing - every instrument is brimming with such smooth funk and the sound is gorgeous right up to and including the ringing cymbal on the outro. The only thing I wanted was some finger clicks for a bar or so right at the start. Masterful. : )

    kingmt77
    Reply by kingmt77

    Whats up Ian? Thanks for stopping through. So the high point for me here was achieving that proper low mid range and upper low range sweet spot. Example, my kick beater makes a slight click when it comes in contact with the drum head. That nuance put me in my happy place. Anyway I appreciate your encouraging comments and fave. Have a great rest of your week and stay safe.

    I was about to say "Mark does lo-fi".
    Then the Tower of Power showed up. Syncopation is a understatement, I knew the Drums were going to be "Nasty Funky" on this one and you delivered.
    The Keys were extra tasty especially @ 2:34ish.
    The outro is smokin.
    This track definitely has a spot in your top five.
    Great Track. Faved..

    Nice filtered intro. cool entrance. love the g-tar, cute synth underneath then the organ with that brass is sublime. Cool Mix. percussion add-ons are a treat, this is a masterclass. After that old school synth solo, the guitar tone was awesome. was it a vst amp? Cool waka wakas at the end, and then gone. I like that ending. great job as usual.

    nice swing in that intro, then drop into that funky groove, its got bounce, love the twinkle of keys and the tamborine and shaker the delicate cynbal make a mark, pardon the pun, just the right loudness same with the hat, the guitar is fly and the brass is always standout with you, like the wah wah feel at theoutro great job mate faved

    Paul, I appreciate the stop and listen. It is good this groove resonated with you to the degree you gave it a fave. It's far from done. I got more funk to inject into it. A little adding here and trimming there, then we'll be finished. P.S. I'm serious...... Dem contract boys coming straight for you. Your tracks keep a smile on my face. Have a great evening and stay safe.
