Fred Wesley – Funk For Your Ass (A Tribute to The Godfather Of Soul) (2008)

Fred

Original

Note for “Gringos”

Most of the material here was produced by Fred Wesley and it is classic old-school J.B.’s sound at their best. All them guys are here, including both funky drummers.
And of top of it we have a few tracks produced by Bootsy Collins which of course sound typical recent Bootsy and add contemporary R&B-ish flavor to the whole album.

Algumas dicas para os amigos de São Paulo que forem ao BMW Jazz Festival:Se você for de carro, prepare os bolsos pois os estacionamentos estarão cobrando um tanto caro por lá (média de R$ 25).
Quem quiser utilizar o transporte público, pode pegar a linha 9 – esmeralda da CPTM e descer na estação Vila Olimpia, já que as estações de metrô/trem encerram as atividades a 1hs do domingo.
O problema de ir com transporte público é se os shows atrasarem e você ficar na mão.

E se algum amigo do Rio quiser passar dicas de transporte para o Teatro Oi Casa Grande, fique à vontade.

Nós do Original Funk Music estaremos presentes no sábado.E no domingo estaremos lá também, sabe lá quando teremos novamente Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley e Pee Wee Ellis juntos no Brasil.

Biography
by Alex Henderson
Trombonist Fred Wesley, saxophonist Maceo Parker, and trumpeters Richard “Kush” Griffith and Rick Gardner comprised Fred Wesley & the Horny Horns, one of the many Parliament/Funkadelic spin-offs that George Clinton worked with in the late ’70s. Back then, the Horny Horns were Parliament/Funkadelic’s horn section and they also backed Clinton associates like Bootsy’s Rubber Band (led by singer Bootsy Collins), Parlet and the Brides of Funkenstein. But Wesley and Parker (who plays both tenor and alto sax) were embracing hardcore funk and soul long before they became part of Clinton’s Parliament/Funkadelic empire; in the ’60s, the thing that made them famous was their association with the seminal Godfather of Soul, James Brown. Like Augusta, GA’s Brown, Wesley and Parker are both from the Deep South, Wesley was born in Mobile, AL, in 1944, while the slightly older Parker was born in North Carolina in 1943. And both of them were in their twenties when they joined Brown’s horn section in the early ’60s. A true perfectionist, Brown was notoriously demanding. He was rightly exalted as the Hardest Working Man in Show Business and Brown expected a lot from his sidemen. But Wesley and Parker were up for the challenge — they were superb musicians who could handle jazz, as well as soul and funk. Though Brown is primarily an R&B singer, he has always identified with jazz, and the fact that Wesley and Parker were quite capable of playing jazz was a definite plus in the Godfather’s mind. In the ’60s and early ’70s, Wesley and Parker played on many of Brown’s major hits. But by 1976, they had left his employ and gone to work for a different funkster who was heavily influenced by the Godfather’s innovations: George Clinton. Of course, Clinton is a major innovator himself and when Wesley and Parker joined Parliament/Funkadelic’s horn section, they continued to be on the cutting edge of funk. After working with them on Parliament classics like The Mothership Connection and The Clones of Dr. Funkenstein (both released in 1976) as well as on Bootsy Collins’ debut album, Stretchin’ Out in Bootsy’s Rubber Band, Clinton decided to oversee a spin-off group that was dubbed Fred Wesley & the Horny Horns. In 1977, Clinton and Collins produced the Horny Horns’ first LP, A Blow for Me, A Toot for You for Atlantic. Part of the record is pure p-funk, although it also contains some jazz-funk instrumentals. The same goes for the Horny Horns’ second Atlantic LP, Say Blow by Blow Backwards, which Wesley produced with Clinton and Collins in 1979. Like the Horny Horns’ first album, Say Blow By Blow Backwards ranges from vocal-oriented p-funk to instrumental soul-jazz. Neither of those LPs were the big sellers that many of Parliament and Funkadelic’s albums were, but they did catch the attention of diehard p-funk collectors. By 1982, Clinton had quit using the names Parliament and Funkadelic and was officially billing himself as a solo artist, but fans continued to call his horn section the Horny Horns. Wesley and Parker went on to record jazz-oriented instrumental albums in the ’90s — Wesley for Antilles, Parker, for Verve — in addition to doing session work for a variety of artists.
