Well, he did say jazzy-funky, not funky-funky!

Well thanks to the advice from this thread I bought
Billy Cobham "spectrum"
Bozzio,Levin,Stevens "situation dangerous"
Dean Brown "here"

Billy Cobham is definitely "the man" that album gets a 9/10

Situation dangerous is a very good album that grows more on me every time I hear it another 9/10 ( couple of flamenco numbers here that I really enjoyed)

I'm listening to Dean brown's "here" right now and it is also pretty damn good. 7.5/10 after first listen.

without a doubt I will be adding more Cobham to my Fusion collection probably even some Mahavishnu Orchestra

there is another Bozzio, Levin, Stevens album that I will get. Steve Stevens also does a Flamenco cd which I will probably get.

I still like my heavy stuff(sabbath, maiden et al), but these cd's are in a league of their own.

Thanks again for all of the suggestions and introducing me to some new old stuff I'm a fusion-fan now!

Wooh-Hoo! I was the one that suggested Billy Cobham! What do I win?

For Mahavishnu, check out the Inner Mounting Flame...one of my favorites from "back in the day" and one that I very recently decided to get on CD!

Could anyone here recommend bands/cd's that are of the funky-jazz genre? I'm talking about rippin'/lively guitars, funky/juiced-up bass, and drums that would give the average man an epileptic fit. Maybe even some whacked out brass.....
<br>I'm talkin' some "REALLY BUSY" tracks
<br>
<br>Please and Thank-you




OK- I found some "wacked out" brass you might like, only took 9 months. Actually, I remembered this thread when I heard the cd. The band is called 3rd Force, the cd Driving force. The track which jarred my memory is track 8- gotta gotta. I was turned on to it by an amazon recomendation, of all things.

Check out John Scofield, I like Blue Matter a lot and his recordings with Medeski Wood & Martin. Tribal Tech's is awesome especially the cd called Tribal Tech. Try also Robben Ford, Scott Henderson and Mike Stern, they all play funky fusion bluesy stuff. You may also like Tower Of Power, that's funky funk...ja,ja,ja. Why don't also try Aquarium Rescue Unit and Gary Willis.

one more...this is more metal rock, but there are a ton of genres incorporated into this disc...and for the most part is sophisticated in your face busy...Vernon Reid and Doug Wimbish are monsters:

Stain - Living Colour
