Various Artists Texas Funk
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Jazzman-Now Again
If the affair between Stones Throw‘s reissue imprint Now Again and British funk obsessives Jazzman proved hot and heavy on last year‘s Midwest Funk, consider Texas Funk the consummation of a new musical marriage. Twenty-one tracks of obscure Lone Star groove-from the famous (Lou Pride, Mickey & The Soul Generation) to the thoroughly unknown (Soul Ones, Eddie Finley, and The Cincinnati Show Band)-melt Latin boogaloo and Chicano horns into their thick, messy funk. A truly class act, from the universally fine selections to the thoroughly informative and beautifully presented 24-page booklet. Highly recommended.
