Haha don't listen to hmm Ant... I have...erm........hmm yes I do have the Out of Time album in my collection... but I hardly think that TAD would approve of my music collection....

TAD...where do you stand on Rare Groove and Jazz Funk for example....

Though most of my stuff is biased toward music of (and to generalise) music of black origin, I appreciate all sorts of other stuff too... although perhaps my idea of Rock might be something like Radiohead, but that would be pretty middle of the road for TAD I think.

TAD... phew... Jazz Funk...

Erm it's extremely broad I'd say... in the same way as say "Rock" and "Metal" have changed over the decades so has Jazz Funk. I suppose if you take the more kind of melodic sounds of jazz and give them a rougher, basser sound, lots of percussion and hints of latin sounds you'd be someway to getting Jazz Funk.

Some examples...and are quite diverse, some more commercial than others might be...

(Roy Ayers is kinda like the godfather of Jazz Funk I'd say)

Early Level 42... such as this track - Love Games would be very much considered Jazz Funk... (wicked bass playing)

So called... Jap Jazz/Funk (smooth.....)

Azymuth... one of the key Jazz Funk bands, remember when you listen to this stuff you have to put it into context of the time, the technology available, music production, trends... this sort of stuff, dance music, disco.... all having an influence on the future hip hop and house music scene.

Even the scotch could do it....

And a modern take on the genre... by German producers Jazzanova... (sweet...must admit I haven't heard this track before and I like it alot)...if you listen you can here the almost signature jazz funk sound.... the vibes :)



What looks to be a good wiki article here (not read it fully yet) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jazz-funk

Hahaha that'll be P-Funk... look up Parliament, don't really have any P-Funk to be honest.... don't dislike what I have heard of it... probably just don't know enough about it really to buy the good stuff.... reminds me of Hip Hop fused with Glam Rock and Funk. :notme

Honest opinion... to me it sounds like Coldplay... and whilst some Coldplay is OK... it often leaves me thinking hmmm bland radio music....great for Capital Radio, Radio 1 etc.

I don't mind mainstream.. in the guitar hero thread on Bikehackers I mentioned Nirvana... they were pretty mainstream in my opinion but their stuff does have a real angst and grittiness to it.

The difference of course between a drummer and a bog seat, is that the bog seat only has to deal with one arsehole at a time.
:clap

They were never meant to be mainstream though. Kurt Cobain started out with his music because he hated MTV and wanted to tell people all about it. By the time they finished, the band as a whole was probably more famous for the MTV Unplugged sessions than much else. Quality band though :D
Indeed... just been annoying my neighbours with a very loud rendition of lithium..... now I'm onto Primal Scream - Loaded
