Taking a quick break from the straight-ahead stuff I’ve put up recently I’m going back briefly to funk for a bit. This one is from the 2015 album ‘Juice’ by Medeski, Scofield, Martin & Wood and penned by Billy Martin, the drummer. Like a lot of the tunes on this album its fairly simple (this one is largely blues-based) with not a lot of changes. The focus is more on the groove, in this case an almost latin feel. Watch out for the awkward length of the solos (25 bars!), with the last two bars as a kind of solo break.
