Funky Skull (CD, Album, RE). Dusty Groove America, Universal Music Special Markets. I highly reccommed this for people who like abstract jazz,or jazz funk. You surely won't have anything that resembles this in your collection. These guys were obviosly smoked out or tripping when making this,its a combination of floating tones,echoes,voices,and a different approach.
Bassist Melvin Jackson has exactly one album in his catalog as a leader (he spent most of his time playing with Eddie Harris). But man, that's all he needed. What does Funky Skull sound like? Psychedelic, funky soul-jazz and a whole lot more. Jackson bowed his bass a well as plucked it depending on what the tune needed. Produced in Chicago by Robin McBride and originally released on the Limelight label, it marked an era of exploration and Jackson was on the ground floor of the space station. download flac ISRACLOUD.
