Maru Funk #4

Still sniffing from this dreadful cold, and just on time with this being the last day of June, here it is - Maru Funk #4!!!

18 more smash funk tunes for your ears in the usual format, that's a Piero Umliani intermission and a killer outro track from somewhere across Europe, in this case the beautiful France Gall.

Also featured are Corduroy with a rare track and recent Glastonbury headliner Stevie Wonder with some instrumental gold. Dr. Lonnie Smith's 'Afrodesia' blurs the lines between Funk and Jazz then back again, DJ Shadow shows us how funky beats are used in the modern day while Alvin Cash takes us back to a time before samplers and only vinyl!

So what choo doin'? Stop reading this and have a Funky good time, I'll be back in July with another Maru Funk and also a Salsa Dura special, not for the feint hearted!!

This time the cover takes it's lead from Xavier Cugat and his album 'Bang Bang' from 1966.
