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 Meters, funk “made in New Orleans"

Never mind James Brown, Sly Stone or George Clinton, The Meters are the true masters of funk! Let’s look back on the history of the grooviest band out of New Orleans, whose music has been abundantly sampled by almost all rappers.

Motown in 10 Albums

The leading authority in pop-soul music, Motown, has just turned sixty years old. This incredible record label founded by Berry Gordy produced hit after hit for Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Rick James and so many other musicians. Motown was first known through its singles, the popular music format at the time, but it soon adapted from 1965 onwards as albums began to emerge. The good old vinyl LP totally transformed the label that called itself “the sound of young America” and transformed its artists’ careers along with it.

Herbie Hancock - Hunt for the Funk

Along with his former employer Miles Davis, pianist Herbie Hancock is the other founding father of jazz-fusion. In 1973, his album "Head Hunters" laid down the Holy Scriptures of the most successful union of jazz improvisation and funk psychedelic trance. Afros and platform boots all around!
