1 – HEAD HUNTERS (1973) Hancock returned to the lighter stuff, as he called it, after producing a number of more experimental works. The first of his Head Hunters albums presents an exciting and complex blend of music of many styles and genres, including jazz, funk, African and Afro-Caribbean music. Many have also noted that while Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew was primarily aimed at a white audience, Head Hunters was all black
In a sea of carbon-copy producers, the Funk Hunters have cultivated their signature sound by creating forward-thinking electronic music that is influenced by old school soul, funk and hip-hop. Listen Now. Upcoming Shows.
Like all genres, funk was a byproduct of circumstance. Not in the accidental sense of the word, but in the sense that art shapes and conforms to the context of the moment. For James Brown, funk was a divorce from the soul sound-and the band-that made him. For George Clinton, it was a fresh start after losing a legal battle and finding LSD. And for Sly Stone it was a reflection of the times and his soul: joyful and optimistic through the ‘60s, cynical and melancholic as the decade turned. The albums below each showcase a different flavor of funk. Some will make you dance, some will make you think, but they will all put a smile on your face at least once.
