Funk It!

Herbie Hancock
When I was younger, Herbie Hancock's "Rock It" was my introduction to synth-funk. I loved it because of the video and sounds and their innovative connection to Peter Gabriel's "Big Time". Both still give me chills.

Later on, Us3's "Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)" refreshed my interest in jazz, reintroducing me to Herbie Hancock and his work on Blue Note. That led me into the funk of Lou Donaldson and Grant Green and Jimmy Smith among others. Talking about music that makes you move!
