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.....
I'm talkin' some "REALLY BUSY" tracks

Please and Thank-you

Craig Chaquico- Midnight noon. Don't know that I would call it busy,but it doesn't just lay there either. Lots of guitar,some keyboards. Availabe in cd or sacd. Accoustic highway is also very strong if you like accoustic guitar.

might be a little to close to the neo soul side but I really like Jazzyfatnastees.

Jeff Beck has several records that I would
consider to be fusion.
I think Wired or Blow by Blow in
that order are very good.

Don't know if it would be what you're looking for, but you might consider Fourplay's Between The Sheets, or The Big Phat Band's Swingin' For The Fences. You can listen to some samples at the links.

Thanks Jack, those were good but not quite what I was looking for. Every once and a while I catch a song on Sirius "planet jazz". Sort of progressive, maybe acid jazz? I'm not sure what I would call it, but it sure is enjoyable to listen to. Quite fast with many time changes and each musician taking a turn at leading. I wish I had an example to give.
The musicians are basically, just jamming. I guess I'll have to be ready (write down the name) next time I hear something like it on sirius.

Kamori8c yes thats getting closer but not quite, I have blow by blow
but not wired I'll check that one out.

Thanks duckman a search of Craig Chaquico brought me to higher octave.com
Could be something there, mostly seems of a smoother type jazz though.
oldskoolboarder, I checked out their site but could not find anything to sample other than the background music.

thanks for the input, maybe there are other ideas?

You're welcome, Warren. Sorry they weren't what you had in mind.

I'll have to recommend anything Maceo Parker.
He's the God of funk, just check his bio. IMHO he's the most underrated sax player there is. He has an unbelievable sound and an out of this world groove ...good stuff indeed.

Personally I think Herbie Hancock's Headhunter's is probably one of the most wonderful and influential funk / jazz fusion albums of all time. His lesser known follow up Thrust may even be better IMO

Jeff Beck's newer stuff: You had it coming, Jeff, Who else? (in that order).
Skatalites "Ball of Fire" (I'll bet you'd like that one).
Local stuff influenced by punk, rap, reggae and surf music: Long Beach Dub All Stars, Bredrin Daddies, Kottonmouth Kings, Slightly Stoopid.

Maybe too mellow, but how about Norman Brown, Jeff Golub, and Chet Atkins (don't laugh, he rocks).
