    if we're gonna go full-on progressive like Herbie, that opens up an entire world of music beyond dance grooves... I'm for it! Gentle Giant actually created some Funk-y stuff as did Gong and Embryo and Kraan
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    from my favorite Parliament album (which is still not as good as most Funkadelic albums)

    the last few George Duke are a little over the top for me (the live on is okay)... too technical in many ways... It's also probably due to the over-escalation that happened in the later 70's. (that Parliament track was also too much for my white arse.)

    Difficult to dance to that kind of stuff... at least for the invertebrate whitie I am.











    It's like that for almost every 70's style (except Reggae maybe): I tend to prefer the early 70's to the later 70's, not just the sonics, but also the mood, the intent, et al...

    Love these!

    Tony and Fernando would go on to be Lou Reed's latter day rhythm section and were great in that role.

    Nate Phillips is badass. I learned that line. Not a great slapper, but I can do it.

    I'm fascinated with a funk stuff that has been played by Eastern European musicians and how their take on funk was finely "proggy". There's a number of THE instrumentals like these on Youtube.

    Geographically speaking, Finland is also Eastern Europe.
