The great American art form: Funk


This was recorded in Osaka, Japan in 2008.


Dr. Lonnie Smith, Hammond organ
Pee Wee Ellis, tenor sax
Fred Wesley, trombone
Rodney Jones, guitar
Idris Muhammad, drums

Funk was created in New Orleans, along with jazz, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll. (And Smokey Johnson taught the Motown people how to use the drums.)

Idris Muhammad, on drums, was born in New Orleans. It's no accident he's on this session.

Please share your favorite videos with your friends and colleagues

That's how we grow.
