Avoid The Funk
Joseph Bowie & Defunkt
Subscribe to Jazz on the Tube
Avant-funk music from Joseph Bowie’s Defunkt
In 1978, trombonist Joseph Bowie founded Defunkt, a group that mixed together funky rhythms, dense ensembles worthy of Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time, and a punk sensibility.
"Avoid The Funk," from a 1981 performance in Germany, has rhythmic singing by Bowie, heated guitar solos from both Kelvyn Bell and Richard Martin, and thunderous electric bass playing by Kim Clarke.
It concludes with some high-note trombone playing by Bowe that Trombone Shorty would enjoy.
