Once again, reviewer Eddie Landsberg is spot-on with his assessment of this band. Funk Inc. play an extremely impressive and addictive brew of soul and funky jazz, with some slight rock and blues garnishes. Think of the vintage Blue Note sounds recorded by the likes of Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, Brother Jack McDuff, and Jimmy McGriff, and add a slight dose of Chuck Berry, and the result is Funk Inc. Yeah, it's that good!
Honestly, I'm surprised that more people haven't rediscovered this band yet. This truly is incredible music. One of the band's main strengths is the organ playing of Bobby Watley. He worked with Lonnie Smith and McDuff, but also cites Jimmy Smith as an influence. Say no more; you need to hear this guy play! In addition to those heavenly organ grooves, the rest of the band is ace too, especially the licks from guitarist Steve Weakley.
I'm thrilled to have belatedly discovered this excellent band (they came from Indianapolis), but also excited to find out that Funk Inc. made several other recordings too. Sign me up, I want to hear them all!
