Brother Jack McDuff – Sophisticated Funk
- US - Reissue
A lost electric groover from Brother Jack McDuff – sweet keyboards instead of his usual Hammond, but still plenty darn great! The record's got a slinky groove that's almost more CTI than Chess Records – with full arrangements by Billy Jones, who also plays guitar on the record – alongside plenty of great sax and flute from Joe Farrell. Sessions were done at the All Platinum Studios in New Jersey – no surprise, given that Chess was owned by that label by this point, and Jones himself was recording for them as part of the group Brother To Brother. The overall groove is somewhere between Bob James and Larry Mizell – although very much its own sort of bag as well – and titles include a great remake of "Theme From Electric Surfboard", plus "Dit Da Dit", "Ju Ju", "To Be Named Later", "Mini Pads", "Summer Dream", and "Mannix Theme". Gotta love the cover, too!
