RIBS: Make It Funky, part 1

Webster’s Dictionary defines “Funk” as… “Music that combines elements of rhythm and blues and soul music and that is characterized by a percussive vocal style, static harmonies, and a strong bass line with heavy downbeats.”

That’s all well and good, but truthfully, they could have just said to listen to anything from James Brown, Sly and the Family Stone or Parliament-Funkadelic!

Ya know, sometimes in order to get the Taste of Music to Sooth Your Soul, you just have to dive DEEP, DEEP, DEEP, DEEP… into the FUNK!
