Album Review: Fatback Band Live In Tokyo
(Funk)

Fatback Band Live In TokyoI LIVED IN JAPAN for 2 years back in the late 70's while stationed at a Navy Base in Yokosuka Japan. So I would like to think that I went to enough concerts to know how the Japanese respond to great American musical genius no matter what the genre. I have seen the Herbie Hancock VSOP tour there also the Emotions and quite a few other shows but I wish I had been there in 2006 when one of the enduring Funk Bands of all time the Fatback Band laid down it's own brand of Soul Cooking that rivals all the other legendary Funk Congregations.

On this just released disc that is sure to bring back memories of your first smoke, your wildest night, that special first girl or guy or the first time you got a whiff of that Fatback it will make you remember the Funk! Percussionist and leader Bill Curtis heads this always flamboyant in their sound defiantly brilliant assembly of musicians. Wiki Wacking their way through fatback funk classics in a way that is more party band then concert band you want to dance from the first cut Funk Backin to the last maybe the most famous of their tune "I Like the Girls" they show that from soul to funk to jazz they can turn a dance floor into something a kin to a soul food kitchen bringing that same ambiance with all the flavors of funk flowing in the air just like when you are getting ready to do a Black Family reunion..

If for some reason you have fooled yourself that the funk is not as important or as funky as it used to be you need to hear this like i did the first time loud and sober, because this music is just as funk sober as it was when you had to have a toke. Doesn't matter how you hear the next time it will already be one of the favorite Cd's! It's not just funky it is fun, fun, fun! The CD includes mega hit " Money got to get my hands on some" "Spanish Hustle", "Backstrokin" , "Bus Stop", "keep on steppin", "Yum Yum", and if you notice they leave off the g's on every word that should end in "ing" and that it self is funky to me! The sax work by Edward Jackson is Superb and so are the background vocals and Bill Curtis's back beats. On the CD it list Bob James as the keyboardist, don't know if it is Bob James of
"Heads and Touchdown" but it sounds like it might be. For all these reasons and more you need to get Fatback live in Tokyo cause as we say at the Friday night fish fry: Greasy is Good! And this CD is sho nuff Greasy!!
