Patrice Rushen entered the 1980s on a high note with Posh, her third album for Elektra and sixth album overall. By that time, it seemed unlikely that Rushen would become a full-time jazz instrumentalist again -- she was enjoying too much success as an R&B/pop singer. And sure enough, it wasn't until 1997's Signature on Discovery that she recorded another instrumental album under her own name. When Posh came out in 1980, jazz's loss appeared to be R&B's gain. If you were a jazz lover, it was frustrating to see Rushen -- a talented improviser with a healthy appreciation of Herbie Hancock -- neglecting jazz. But if you loved sleek, sophisticated R&B/pop, you couldn't help but savor Posh and get into such offerings as the exuberant, Emotions-influenced "Look Up!," the vulnerable, slightly Stevie Wonder-ish "I Need Your Love," and the infectious "The Funk Won't Let You Down." Meanwhile, "Time Will Tell" has a bit of a rock edge and may very well be the most rock-influenced tune Rushen has ever recorded. Posh is enthusiastically recommended to anyone with a taste for late 1970s and early 1980s R&B. ~ Alex Henderson

The Prince of the 80s

In the family of funk Prince Rogers Nelson was a genre all by himself. In 40 years of career, he managed to mix the legacy of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with influences like rock 'n' roll, electro and even jazz. An exuberant and stunning groove that shone mainly between 1978 and 1988...

“Thriller”: The Anatomy of a Masterpiece

With "Thriller” in 1982, the best-selling album of all time, Michael Jackson broke down the boundaries between styles, races and audiences. However, most of all, it was an album that completely shook up the pop music industry of the 20th century.

Philadelphia Soul, Funk with a Bow Tie

Neither Motown nor Stax Records! Philadelphia Soul offered a third voice of its own. Created by the Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff duo, this genre - the precursor of disco - made America dance in the early 70s by soaking it in silk and champagne.
