Foundation: the base upon which something is built. From houses to skyscrapers, foundations are essential. They must be solid, strong and most of all, immovable. A funk foundation? That, too, must be solid and strong. But immovable? No, quite the opposite. A funk foundation supplies the movement, the locomotion, in a word: the groove.

The Vinyl Vault | Herb Geller: Rhyme and Reason

Jan 30, 2017

This week’s Vinyl Vault will feature flute and sax man Herb Geller’s 1975 album Rhyme and Reason. The album features vocals by Mark Murphy and Earl Jordan. It was recorded in Germany with a European band that includes Philip Catherine on guitar. They lay down some juicy soul-jazz grooves with Geller’s multi-tracked woodwinds over the top.

Check out the Vinyl Vault with host Geoff Anderson on Tuesday, January 31 at 8:30 on KUVO (kuvo.org)

This week on the Vinyl Vault it’s The Cornelius Bumpus Quartet with their 1983 album “Beacon.” Bumpus played saxophone for the Doobie Brothers during the last few years that band was actively recording albums. After the Doobies broke up, Bumpus formed his own band to play jazz and “Beacon” was the second of three albums he released as a leader. Later, in the 1990s, Bumpus joined Steely Dan and toured with that group for several years before his death in 2004. The Vinyl Vault, Tuesday at 8:30 on KUVO.
