The HeadHunters High Fly 2013

Funky is as funky does...
Brent Black /
Fellow babies, funk is indeed where you find it. A feeling, an in the pocket groove that lays down a beat you can hear with your feet and feel in your hips. Funk is part of the place way down past your soul. Digging funk is like falling in love, you really can not explain it but you know it when it happens!
Hardcore aficionados are familiar with the HeadHunters. I stumbled across this gem while playing musical prospector looking for that gold nugget. The one thing and perhaps most important thing I have learned walking the critical jazz high wire without a net is sometimes you have to take what you know and what you are comfortable with and move past that. The HeadHunters take an old school retro flash fried funk groove and simply amp it up for the next generation. This is Big Apple funk, the sound and heartbeat of the city that never sleeps.
High Fly is in the pocket squared...Groove-a-licious. Now for those of you playing at home just who are these guys?
This is a new release from the legendary jazz/funk band The Headhunters featuring Paul Jackson on bass, Bill Summers on percussion, Mike Clark on drums, Brian Jackson on keyboards and Jerry Stucker on guitar.

Funkin AT THE CHICKEN SHACK – Tony Adamo – 1990/HIPSPOKEN’ WORD Jimmy Smith was laying down an incredible riff on a wall of kinetic sound that was oozing out of my car radio/ I was on my way back from a singing gig at an Indian Restaurant Saturday night is jazz night in the City by the Bay/ On my approach to the Bay Bridge I could see the fog was cold and watery wet as it lay low and crept along like solders on night patrol in Vietnam/ I steered my Chevy Nova like it was a priceless Lamborghini the musical transition of thought No traffic on the B Bridge…2:00AM on the steel span and all was right with me/ Jimmy smith with friends Kenny Burrell, Stanley Turrenting, and drummer, Donald “Duck” Bailey were my musical guides for the ride/ I dug deep as I had to slow down, the fog was horror movie thick/ Now I had time to think to the 100th power Sho’ ‘ nuff and came up with Don Patterson, Richard Groove Holmes,Charles Earland, George Fame, Wild Bill Davis, Shirley Scott, Big John Patton, Baby Face Willette, Larry Young, Brother Jack McDuff, Jimmy Magriff./ That’s where it’s at baby the royal bloodline of B-3 players who brought us into R&B, Pop, Rock & Roll and Soul Jazz. Into the swingin’ feature goes Joey “D”. No boundries, no limits/ Bridge: Back at the Chicken Shack people dancin’ to a kookin’ groove. Breakin’ out into a funk sweat Boogie sounds brewin’ from the B-3 Your twisted sister never danced like that Reuben Wilson and his killer sounds was a stackin’ the beat shakin’ the Chicken Shack down to its feet What a beautiful and dynamic management of mind, body and intellect goes into coaxing Soul Jazz out of a fat Hammond B-3 organ/ Was it the foggy, misty, jazzy night? Or…was it that I actually got paid to sing Jazz?/ No! It was Jimmy Smith’s playin’ that was vibbin’ me along the steel rail the joyous atmosphere that hung in dense textures of musical thought was punctuating my life like bayonets turning to thumb prints on the consciousness of my creative mind. It was in thick reference to the wet fog rippling across the bridge, like fingers on a Hammond B3, Jimmy and me……free to be.
