Various Artists Texas Funk

Publish date:

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.
