It's written on the cover: funk is my religion! The trombonist came in from the cold is wearing his heart on his sleeve with this 11th Funk Unit album. The leader of this gleaming groove machine which formed in 1994, Landgren has rekindled a full-strength funk which mixes the Headhunters-era Herbie Hancock sound with the influence of Fred Wesley's and Maceo Parker's J.B.s. As is often the case with him, the whole work is powered from start to finish by brass: trombone (his own) and sax (played by Jonas Wall). And as this is a work of funk, the bass/drums duo (Magnum Coltrane Price and Robert Ikiz) are also in pole position. But above all, Funk Unit has made the most progress in terms of vocals – and on this score, the group is able to hold their own against any Anglo-Saxon funksters. This album is the perfect antidote for lockdown, a balm for both body and mind. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

The Prince of the 80s

Within the family tree of funk, Prince Rogers Nelson, who passed away in April 2016, was a branch all of his own. In the course of a career spanning almost forty years, he managed to blend together the heritage of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with other influences, from rock'n'roll to electronica to jazz. He produced an exuberant, attention-grabbing groove, and his star shone brightest between 1978 and 1988…

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Despite having disappeared from the music scene for years, Betty Davis remains a pioneer of feline soul sisters. The ultimate funk goddess. She also brought electricity to a certain Miles Davis who she would go on to marry, if only for a short while. But who are you Betty?

Sly 100% Stone

With "There's a Riot Going On", Sly Stone and his Family brought funk into America's chaotic 1970s. Welcome to hell!
