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.
